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 every nation,
Joy of every longing heart.

Verse 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.

Verse 3

Come Thou long expected Jesus
Bring Your light again we pray
From addiction and darkness free us
Shine the light of glorious day
Through Your church Lord bring Your gospel
To the schemes of this dear land
So that all might see Your glory
And sing praises to The Lamb.
