Come, Thou Almighty King (Italian Hymn)
by Felice de Giardini
Come, Thou almighty King
Help us Thy Name to sing, help us to praise!
Father all glorious, over 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!
O Lod, our God, to Thee
The highest praises be, hence, evermore
Thy sovereign majesty may we in glory see
And to eternity love and adore!
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!
