#84: Come, Thou Long-Expected Jesus

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

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,

Home of all the earth Thou art;

Dear Desire of ev’ry nation,

Joy of ev’ry longing heart.

2

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.
