306. Come, O Long Expected Jesus

1 Come, O long expected Jesus,
Born to set your people free;
From our fears and sins release us;
Free us from captivity.

2 Israel's strength and consolation,
You, the hope of all the earth,
Dear desire of ev'ry nation,
Come, and save us by your birth.

3 Born your people to deliver;
Born a child and yet a king!
Born to reign in us for ever,
Now your gracious kingdom bring.

4 By your own eternal Spirit
Rule in all our hearts alone;
By your all-sufficient merit
Raise us to your glorious throne.
