Come Thou Long Expected Jesus

Pete Stewart, from Hope Community Church Barlanark, has written a fantastic third verse for this classic hymn by Charles Wesley. We long to see more people freed from addiction and darkness as we seek to bring gospel light to Scotland’s schemes through the local church. May God be glorified as redeemed sinners gather to sing praises to the Lamb.

This is a congregational song which we hope might serve your local church. The chord sheet is available here.

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
