#6: Come, Thou Almighty King

Standard

 (Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

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.

2

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.

3

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.

4

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.
