Come, Thou Long-Expected Jesus
The promise which was made . . . God hath fulfilled–Acts 13:32-33 KJV
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 all
sufficient merit, Raise us to Thy glorious throne.
