239. Come, Thou Almighty King

1 Come, Thou Almighty King,
Help us Thy name to sing,
Help us to praise.
Father 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;
Stablish Thy righteousness,
Savior and Friend!

3 Come, holy Comforter,
Thy sacred witness bear
In this glad hour.
Thou, who almighty art,
Now rule in ev'ry heart
And ne'er from us depart,
Spirit of Pow'r!

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

Amen.
