334. Come Now, Almighty King

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

2 Come now, incarnate Word,
Merciful, mighty Lord,
Our prayer attend.
Come and your people bless,
And give your Word success,
Grant us your holiness,
Savior and Friend.

3 Come, holy Comforter,
Your sacred witness bear
In this glad hour.
Your grace to us 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
For evermore!
Your sov'reign majesty
May we in glory see
And, to eternity,
Love and adore.
