Patient Kingdom is from Sandra McCracken’s album of the same name.
Though not specifically a congregational song, the lyrics and melody invite corporate expression and singing.

The lyrics:
Chorus 1.
Let my soul rise up to meet You
As the day rises to the sun
Let my soul rise up to meet You
Let that patient kingdom come
Verse 1.
When’s the last time you felt steady in the chaos?
Hear the sound when the seed falls to earth
Is it time to give up your destination?
Slow me down, let love do its work
Chorus.
Verse 2.
As the trees and hummingbirds lead the chorus
They work so hard, and their center so still
Is it time for a change in direction?
Slow me down where I bend to Your will
Chorus.
Bridge.
Slow me down
Slow me down
Let love do its work
Chorus 2.
Let my soul rise up to meet You
As the day rises to the sun
Let my soul rise up to meet You
Let that patient kingdom come
