Come, thou long-expected Jesus

Wednesday, December 07, 2005
Praised be Jesus Christ!! Now and Forever!!

"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 of 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 for ever,
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."

text by Charles Wesley 1707-1788
