“Come, Thou Almighty King” by Unknown Author
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; Stablish Thy righteousness, Savior and Friend!
3. Come, holy Comforter, Thy sacred witness bear In this glad hour. Thou, who almighty art, Now rule in every heart And ne’er from us depart, Spirit of Power!
4. To the great One in Three Eternal praises be Hence evermore! His sovereign majesty May we in glory see And to eternity Love and adore!
