27. Come, Thou Almighty King

1 Come, thou almighty King,
help us thy name to sing;
help us to praise:
one God, all-glorious,
o'er all victorious,
come and reign over us,
ancient of days.

2 Come, thou incarnate Word,
gird on thy mighty sword,
our prayer attend;
come, and thy people bless,
and give thy word success;
Spirit of holiness,
on us descend.

3 Come, holy Comforter,
thy sacred witness bear,
in this glad hour!
Thou, who almighty art,
now rule in every heart,
and ne'er from us depart,
Spirit of power.

4 To the great One in Three,
eternal praises be,
hence evermore!
Thy sovereign majesty,
may we in glory see,
and to eternity
love and adore.
