Hymn History

Read the story behind Come Thou Long Expected Jesus.

verse 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
verse 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
verse 3 (NEW)
In His Kingdom reign unending
Celebrate the Lamb of Light
Pardon given, grace descending
From His glorious throne of might
Praise resounds in joyful chorus
Endless hope to us He imparts
Boundless mercy spread before us
King eternal in our hearts
