  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 every nation,
         Joy of every longing heart.
  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.
  3.  Come, Almighty, to deliver,
        Let us all Thy life receive;
      Suddenly return, and never, never
         more thy temples leave.
      Thee we would be always blessing,
         Serve Thee as Thy hosts above,
      Pray, and praise Thee without ceasing,
         glory in Thy perfect love.
