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 prayers 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 ev’ry heart
And ne’er from us depart, Spirit of Pow’r.
4. To Thee, great One in Three, eternal praises be
Hence ever more:
Thy sov’reign majesty may we in glory see
And to eternity, love and adore.
Father, now call us out of our wandering
Jesus, now come and cast out our fear
Spirit, now preach the Son to our deafness
Open our hearts, open our hearts
