‘Come, Thou Almighty King’

This hymn was sung a lot in our church, and I remembered the name of the author, as given in the hymnal: Felice De Giardini. He published the music in 1769. No one knows who wrote the lyrics, sometimes attributed to Charles Wesley.

Here it is from the choir at St. Peter’s RC Church in Columbia, South Carolina.
