Hail, thou long-expected Jesus

1 Hail, thou long expected Jesus,
Born to set thy people free!
From our sins and fears release us.
Let us find our rest in thee.

2 Israel's strength and consolation,
Hope of all the saints, thou art
Long desir'd of every nation,
Joy of every waiting heart.

3 Born thy people to deliver.
Born a child, yet God our King,
Born to reign in us for ever.
Now thy gracious kingdom bring.

(1707-1788), 1744
