190. 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 Jesus our Lord arise,
Scatter our enemies,
And make them fall;
Let thine almighty aid,
Our sure defence be made,
Our souls on thee be staid,
Lord hear our call.

3 Come holy comforter,
Thy sacred witness bear,
In this glad hour;
Thou, who almighty art,
Descend in every heart,
And ne'er from us depart.
Spirit of power.

4 Come thou incarnate word,
Gird on thy mighty sword,
Our prayers attend;
Come and thy people bless,
And give thy word success,
Spirit of holiness,
On us descend.

5 To the great one in three
Eternal praises be
Hence ever more;
Thy sov'reign majesty
May we in glory see,
And to eternity
Love and adore.
