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.
2. Israelís Strength and Consolation,
Hope of all the earth Thou art,
Dear Desire of every nation,
Joy of every longing heart.
3. Born Thy people to deliver
Born a Child and yet a King
Born to reign in us for ever,
Now Thy gracious Kingdom bring.
4. By Thine own eternal Spirit
Rule in all our hearts alone
By Thine all-sufficient merit,
Raise us to Thy glorious throne.
