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 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.

Love this Hymn. Learned it as a little girl (Tganks to my Godly mother) and I am almost 79yrs. Amen Come Lord Jesus.
Oops so many spelling mistakes. Sorry Pippi. And I’m only 69!!!
I was just about to correct you on your age! And not your spelling! 🙂 Love this hymn, so speaks of Advent. Was taught this by my godly mother! xx
