Come, Thou Long Expected Jesus Lyrics 

Charles Wesley, 1744 (Verses 1 & 4)

Mark Hunt, 1978 (Verses 2 & 3)

  • Verse 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 ev’ry nation,
  • Joy of every longing heart.
  • Verse 2
  • Joy to those who long to see Thee
  • Day-spring from on high, appear.
  • Come, Thou promised Rod of Jesse,
  • Of Thy birth, we long to hear!
  • O’er the hills the angels singing
  • News, glad tidings of a birth;
  • “Go to Him your praises bringing
  • Christ the Lord has come to earth!”
  • Verse 3
  • Come to earth to taste our sadness,
  • He whose glories knew no end.
  • By His life He brings us gladness,
  • Our redeemer, Shepherd, Friend.
  • Leaving riches without number,
  • Born within a cattle stall;
  • This the everlasting wonder,
  • Christ was born the Lord of all.
  • Verse 4
  • Born Thy people to deliver,
  • Born a child, and yet a King,
  • Born to reign in us for ever,
  • 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.
