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.
