Come, Thou Almighty King
Italian Hymn

     Charles Wesley                                         Felice Giardini

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!

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!

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 power!

To the great One and Three,
Eternal praises be
Hence, evermore:
His soverign majesty
May we in glory see,
And to eternity
Love and adore!
