Hebrews 4:12


Come, Thou Long-Expected Jesus


                    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.
