555. 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,
our just and mighty Lord,
our prayer attend.
Come and your people bless
and give your word success;
strengthen your righteousness,
Savior and Fiend!

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
forevermore!
Your sov'reign majesty
may we in glory see,
and to eternity
love and adore!
