5. Come, Thou Almighty King

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 almighty art,
now rule in every heart,
and ne'er from us depart,
Spirit of power.

4 To Thee, great One in Three,
eternal praises be
hence, evermore!
Thy sovereign majesty
may we in glory see,
and to eternity
love and adore!
