Come, Thou Long Expected Jesus

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.

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.

~ Charles Wesley

  1. I absolutely love this song. Thanks for sharing the words! I especially like this part, “From our fears and sins release us, Let us find our rest in Thee.” So Beautiful!

    BTW, thanks for following my new blog! I appreciate it! :)

  2. I love this song, and I love things written by Charles Wesley…someday I want an entire book of all his hymns and poems. I haven’t found one yet though.

    Thank you for the sweet reminder Corey!
