314. Come Now, Almighty King

1 Come now, almighty King,
help us your name to sing,
help us to praise;
one God all glorious,
ever victorious,
come and reign over us,
Ancient of Days.

2 Come now, incarnate Son,
your life in us begun,
our prayer attend;
come, and your people bless;
come, give your word success;
stablish your righteousness,
Saviour and friend!

3 Come holy Comforter,
your sacred witness bear
in this glad hour;
your grace to us impart,
now rule in every heart,
never from us depart,
Spirit of power!

4 To the great One in Three,
eternal praises be
for evermore;
your sovereign majesty
may we in glory see,
and to eternity
love and adore!
