Come, Thou Almighty King

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 every heart,
And ne’er from us depart,
  Spirit of power.
To Thee, great One in Three,
Eternal praises be
  Hence evermore.
Thy sov’reign majesty
May we in glory see,
And to eternity
  Love and adore.

I often sing this praise hymn to our great Triune God. It lifts my Spirit! I sang it early this morning in my quite time and the atmosphere was filled with Holy praise!!

Saw this hymn but did not know the tune. I am grateful for the prerecorded singing that you have available. Beautiful hymn and so glorifying to God. I’m also glad for the lack of ads on your site. I’m sure that’s a financial sacrifice on your end but it makes the experience so much better when there aren’t ads popping up. Thank you

Went out for a walk this afternoon and the words of the third verse came to mind. Have known this hymn for years but can't remember last time heard it sung. So thankful for these beautiful words of truth of our Sovereign Lord and Gracious King!

The original tune to this hymn is the same as for God Save The Queen and works very well. Makes a great Christian anthem.


Powerful, relationship-building lyrics, so endearing!

It is indeed more than a blessing to know this hymn, how confident it is to understand the limitlessness of our God...

God Bless This Site Creator!

I was praying and the song kept coming to my heart. I sang it. Power words. What a great God we serve.

The song gives me goose pimples whenever I hear it sang, during this period of COVID19, when churches are closed and hymns aren't heard anymore, one of my colleague sang it and I felt happy and dashed to this site to get the wordings.

Thank you the creator of this site.

Woke up early this morning singing this song in my mind. Had not heard it in years. Blessed time.

My six-year-old grandson was slowly picking out this tune on the piano just now. It filled me with memories of having sung it so many times with my parents growing up in church. This hymn is so tight theologically. It’s sad that we have gotten away from hymns that instruct us so well.
