487. 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 Son,
Your life in us begun,
Our prayer attend.
Come and your people bless,
And give your Word success:
Strengthen your righteousness,
Savior and Friend!

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
For evermore!
Your sov'reign majesty
May we in glory see
And to eternity
Love and adore!
