Come, Thou Long Expected Jesus

Text:  Charles Wesley  1744
Music:  Dutch Traditional 
Tune:  In Babilone  87.87D
OHT Incipit:  

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.
Israelís Strength and Consolation,
Hope of all the earth Thou art;
Long desired of every nation,
Joy of every waiting heart.

Born Thy people to deliver,
Born a child, yet God, our 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.
