Come Thou Long-Expected Jesus – Christmas Songs 2016 Day 13

Leave a comment

I include a version of Come Thou Long-Expected Jesus most years.
I’m getting to the point where I could do twenty-five days of posting just one song.
This year’s is from Rain For Roots and has a nice part added at the end that harmonies with the hymn.
I completely endorse HYFRYDOL as the best tune for this hymn, by the way.

Lyrics:
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

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

We are waiting
We are waiting
We are waiting for You.
(Hallelujah, what a Savior!)

By Thine own eternal Spirit
Rule in all our hearts alone
By Thine all sufficient merit
Raise us to Thy glorious throne

We are waiting
We are waiting
We are waiting for You.
