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.
— "Come, Thou Long Expected Jesus" by Charles Wesley
Let us keep our focus on Him and His coming during this season of advent. May your Lord's Day be blessed!
" . . . the desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory, saith the Lord of hosts." — Haggai 2:7b
