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 eternal Lord,
By heaven and earth adored,

Our prayer attend.
Come, and thy people bless;
Give thy good word success;
Make thine own holiness

On us descend.

3 Be thou our comforter;
Thy sacred witness bear

In this glad hour.
Omnipotent thou art :
O, rule in every heart,
And ne'er from us depart,

Spirit of power!
4 O Holy One! to thee
Eternal praises be

Hence, evermore.
Thy sovereign majesty
May we in glory see,

Love and adore.

And to eternity

4 While in thy house of prayer we kneel

With trust and holy fear,
Thy mercy and thy fruth reveal,

And lend a gracious ear.
5 With fervor teach our hearts to pray,

And tune our lips to sing;
Nor from thy presence cast'away

The sacrifice we bring.
