"Kingdom Coming" or "The Year of Jubilo" is an American Civil War song, written and composed by Henry C. Work in 1862, prior to the Emancipation Proclamation.

The song celebrates promised freedom to slaves whose master has been frightened away by the Union military forces.

But it is mostly heard as an instrumental these days.
