++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

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.

2.  Israel’s strength and consolation,

hope of all the earth thou art;

dear desire of every nation,

joy of every longing heart.

3.  Born thy people to deliver,

born a child, and yet a king,

born to reign in us for ever,

now thy gracious kingdom bring.

4.  By thine own eternal Spirit

rule in all our hearts alone;

by thine all-sufficient mercy

raise us to thy glorious throne.
