I wanna tell you another story

All about a woman making barley bread

Flour and water out on the table

“We need a little leaven,” she said

So, she works, she works

She works to mix the leaven into the flour

She works, she works

She works to make the barley bread

Mama, mama, how much longer?

How much longer for the dough to rise?

Oh my children, don’t you worry

You just gotta wait till the time is right

So they wait, they wait

They wait while the dough is rising, rising

They wait, they wait

They wait for the barley bread

This is a story of the kingdom of heaven

This is what the storyteller Jesus said

The kingdom of heaven is just like the leaven

That worked to raise up that barley bread

So we wait, we wait

We wait while the kingdom’s coming, coming

We wait, we wait

We wait while the kingdom’s coming, coming

We wait, we wait, we wait while the kingdom’s coming, coming

We wait, we wait, we wait for the kingdom to come

We wait for the kingdom to come
