Come, Thou Long Expected Jesus


EA/EB/E
Come, thou long expected Jesus,
EA/EB/EE
Born to set Thy people free;
EA/EB/E
From our fears and sins release us;
EABE
Let us find our rest in Thee.
C#E/G#AB
Israel's strength and consolation,
EC#AB
Hope of all the earth Thou art;
EBB/A
Dear Desire of every nation,
E/G#ABsusBE
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.

Lyrics: Charles Wesley, 1744
