Come Thou Long Expected Jesus

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 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 own sufficient merit Raise us to Thy glorious throne
