1 Come, thou almighty King, help us thy Name to sing, help us to praise. Father whose love unknown all things created own, build in our hearts thy throne, Ancient of Days.
2 Come, thou incarnate Word, by heaven and earth adored; our prayer attend: come, and thy people bless; come, 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 Thee, great One in Three, the highest praises be, hence evermore; thy sovereign majesty may we in glory see, and to eternity love and adore.
