COME THOU LONG EXPECTED JESUS

Next

Come, thou long expected Jesus,

Come 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 thou art;

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.

By thine own eternal spirit

Rule in all our hearts alone;

By thine all sufficient merit, 

Raise us to thy glorious throne.
