Come, Thou Long-Expected Jesus

Hymns

Come Thou long expected Jesus,
born to set Thy people free

From our fears and sins release us,
let us find our rest in Thee.

Israel’s strength and consolation,
hope of all the earth;

Dear desire of every nation,
joy
 of every longing heart.

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.
