Satan, Your KINGdom Must Come Down

June 26, 2012

Altogether only 4 simple lines in this American folksong that dates to at least the early 20th century:

I’m gonna pray until they tear your kingdom down!
Gonna shout till they tear your kingdom down!
I heard the voice of Jesus say,
‘Satan, your kingdom must come down’

Here are 2 excellent renditions. First a more melodic version by Robert Plant, vocalist for the 1970s supergroup, Led Zeppelin, followed by country/western superstar Willie Nelson with a haunting, somber version. The serious look on both of their faces speaks volumes!
