169. Come, O Almighty King

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

2 Come, O incarnate Word,
Gird on your mighty sword;
Our prayer attend.
Come and your people bless,
And give your Word success,
And let your righteousness
On us descend.

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

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