Come, Thou Long-Expected Jesus

  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,
    hope of all the earth thou art,
    dear Desire of ev’ry nation,
    joy of ev’ry longing heart.

  4. 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.
