Come Thou Long Expected Jesus - Twila Paris - Ecclesia College Spokesperson


Come, Thou Long-Expected Jesus

Text: Charles Wesley, 1707-1788

Tune: HYFRYDOL, Meter: 87.87 D
1. 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.

2. 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.
