Come, O long-expected Jesus
Come, O long-expected Jesus,
born to set your people free!
From our fears and sins release us,
Christ, in whom our rest shall be.
2. Israel’s strength and consolation,
born salvation to impart;
dear desire of every nation,
joy of every longing heart.
3. Born your people to deliver,
born a child and yet a King;
born to reign in us for ever,
now your gracious kingdom bring.
4. By your own eternal Spirit
rule in all our hearts alone;
by your all-sufficient merit
raise us to your glorious throne.
