Come, Thou Long-Expected Jesus

By Charles Wesley

      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.
