Kingdom Coming, by Henry Clay Work (1862). I had only known part of the second verse, which my mother used to sing. A fine tune. The words won't cut it because they were too topical. They are politically incorrect, but the problem is even more basic. Up to the minute political words are often impossibly stale ten years later. A lot of those political "folk songs" from the 1960's have gone the same way.
