Psalms, Hymns, & Spiritual Songs: “Come, Thou Almighty King”

In Ephesians 5:15-21, we are given directions on how to properly live as Christians. One of these is to sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with your heart.

Psalms, Hymns, & Spiritual Songs: “Come, Thou Almighty King”Each Monday, I share a song from history or present day that present a high view of God, praise Him, and teaches solid doctrine.

“Blessed are You, O Lord God of Israel our father, forever and ever. Yours, O Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, indeed everything that is in the heavens and the earth; Yours is the dominion, O Lord, and You exalt Yourself as head over all. Both riches and honor come from You, and You rule over all, and in Your hand is power and might; and it lies in Your hand to make great and to strengthen everyone. Now therefore, our God, we thank You, and praise Your glorious name.” (1 Chronicles 29:10b-13)

Come, Thou Almighty King

(first published in the 1757 edition of George Whitefield’s Collection of Hymns for Social Worship)

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.

Psalms, Hymns, & Spiritual Songs: “Come, Thou Almighty King”Come, Thou Incarnate Word,
Gird on Thy mighty sword,
Our pray’r 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 pow’r.

To the great One in Three,
Eternal praises be
Hence evermore.
His sov’reign majesty
May we in glory see,
And to eternity
Love and adore.
