C. 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 for ever,

Now Thy gracious kingdom bring:

172

By Thine own eternal Spirit

Rule in all our hearts alone;

By Thine all-sufficient merit,

Raise us to Thy glorious throne.
