Come Thou Almighty King

Charles Wesley, 1757
[Key: Db]

Verse 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!

Verse 2
Jesus, our Lord, arise,
Scatter our enemies, And make them fall;
Let Thine almighty aid our sure defense be made,
Souls on Thee be stayed; Lord, hear our call.

Verse 3
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!

Verse 4
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!

Verse 5
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!
