Lead sheet (piano/vocal chart) for the song “Come Almighty to Deliver” as performed by NAOBC Worship.

Verse 1
Love divine, no love comparing:
Joy of heaven come to earth,
Stepping down from realms of glory
To a manger in the dirt.
Jesus, You are all compassion,
Born a man, yet fully God—
Christ begotten, not created;
Emptied out to save the lost.

Verse 2
Come, Thou long-expected Jesus,
Born to set your people free;
From our fear and sin release us—
Let us find our rest in Thee.
Come, Almighty, to deliver,
Let us all thy life receive;
Take away the love of sinning,
Set our hearts at liberty.

Come, O come Emmanuel!
Jesus Christ is born!
Come, O Come Emmanuel!
Christ the Son is born!

Verse 3
Born Thy people to deliver,
Born a child and yet a king;
Born to reign in us forever,
Now Thy gracious kingdom bring.
By Thine own eternal Spirit
Rule in all our hearts alone;
By Thine all sufficient merit
Raise us to Thy glorious throne.

Verse 4
Finish, then, your new creation;
True and spotless let us be.
Let us see your great salvation
Perfectly restored in Thee.
Changed from glory into glory,
‘Til in heav’n we take our place,
‘Til we cast our crowns before thee,
Lost in wonder, love, and praise.

Christ the Son is born!
