66 Come, thou long-expected Jesus

The Hymnal 1982 66

Come, thou long-expected Jesus

Charles Wesley, 1707-1788
William Henry Havergal, 1793-1870

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.

2 Israel's strength and consolation, hope of all the earth thou art; dear desire of every nation, joy of every longing heart.

3 Born thy people to deliver, born a child, and yet a King, born to reign in us forever, now thy gracious kingdom bring.

4 By thine own eternal Spirit rule in all our hearts alone; by Ttne all sufficient merit, raise us to thy glorious throne.
