Come, Thou Almighty King

Hymns to the Living God (2 of 3)

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 Incarnate Word,
gird on Thy mighty sword,
our pray’r attend:
Come, and Thy people bless,
and give Thy Word success:
Spirit of holiness,
on us descend.

Come, Holy Comforter,
Thy sacred witness bear
in this glad hour:
Thou who almighty art,
now rule in ev’ry heart,
and ne’er from us depart,
Spirit of pow’r.

To the great One in Three,
eternal praises be
hence evermore.
His sov’reign majesty
may we in glory see,
and to eternity
love and adore.
