905. 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,
And let Thy righteousness
On us descend.

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 Thee, great One in Three,
Eternal praises be
Hence evermore!
Thy sov'reign majesty
May we in glory see,
And to eternity
Love and adore.
