(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)
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 prayer 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 almight 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 everymore; His sov’reign majesty May we in glory see,
And to eternity Love and adore.
