7. Come, Thou Almighty King

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.

Come, thou all gracious Lord,
By heaven and earth adored,
Our prayer attend,
Come, and thy people bless,
Give thy good word success.
Spirit of holiness,
On us descend.

Never from us depart,
Rule thou in every heart,
Hence, evermore:
Thy sovereign majesty
May we in glory see,
And to eternity
Love and adore!
