Come, Thou Long-Expected Jesus/Come, Oh Come


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 ev’ry nation

Joy of ev’ry longing heart


Come, oh come

Jesus, meet us here

Come, oh come

Draw Your people near

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

For to us a child is born,

    to us a son is given;

and the government shall be upon his shoulder,

    and his name shall be called

Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,

    Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Isaiah 9:6
