55. Come, thou long-expected Jesus


Gotha, 1715

Charles Wesley, 1744

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 for ever,

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.
