Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Come, O thou prince of glory

Come, O thou prince of glory

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Come, O thou prince of glory come!
O dwell with us, here make thy home;
To all the nations shew thy light,
And bring the way of truth to sight.

2 To thee is known all we do need,
Thou art our comforter indeed.
We give our hearts and minds to thee,
O may thy dwelling with us be!

3 But O, thou art already here!
Our minds and senses feel thee near--
We know that thou art good and kind.
Thy grace works sweetly on our mind.

4 O fill our hearts with heavenly love!
Teach us true wisdom from above;
Our hearts and wills to thee incline,
And cause us to be wholy thine.

5 Direct our minds in all thy ways;
Our tongues imploy to shew thy praise--
So shall we serve thee as we ought
In all our actions, words and thought.

6 Grant us thy blessed spirits aid,
By which our feeble minds are stay'd!
Increase our hope, confirm our faith,
And make us faithful unto death.

7 With heav'nly aid our souls revive,
In faith, and truth, and love to thrive,
Till we with holy Angels sing:
Hosannah to the Lord our king.
