Come, Thou Almighty King

Verse 1:
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!

Verse 2:
Come, Thou Incarnate Word,
Gird on Thy mighty sword:
Our prayers attend:
Come, and Thy people bless,
And give Thy word success:
Spirit of holiness!
On us descend.

Verse 3:
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!

Verse 4:
To the great One in Three,
The highest praises be,
Hence evermore!
His sov’reign majesty
May we in glory see,
And to eternity
Love and adore.

C. Wesley/Felice Giardini
