757 (8.7.8.7.D) Charles Wesley

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 saints Thou art;

Dear Desire of ev'ry nation —

Joy of ev'ry 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.
