Hymn day: “Come, Thou Long Expected Jesus”

HYMN DAY! Charles Wesley penned some of the most meaningful hymns. “Come, Thou Long Expected Jesus” is often sung at Christmastime, but it’s a wonderful reminder of Who He is and what He came to accomplish.

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.
Israel’s strength and consolation,
hope of all the earth thou art;
dear desire of every nation,
joy of every longing heart.

2. 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.
