193. Come, Now, Almighty King

1 Come, now, almighty King;
Help us your name to sing;
Help us to praise.
Father all-glorious,
O'er all victorious,
Come and reign over us,
Ancient of Days.

2 Come, now, incarnate Word;
Put on your mighty sword;
Our prayer attend.
Come and your people bless,
And give your Word success;
Grant us your righteousness,
Savior and Friend.

3 Come, holy Comforter;
Your sacred witness bear
In this glad hour.
Your sev'nfold gifts impart;
Now rule in ev'ry heart;
Never from us depart,
Spirit of Pow'r.

4 To the great One in Three
Eternal praises be
His sov'reign majesty
May we in glory see
And to eternity
Love and adore.
