Come, Thou Long Expected Jesus – Christian Christmas Hymn with Lyrics

“Come, Thou Long Expected Jesus” is a 1744 Advent and Christmas carol common in Protestant hymnals. The text was written by Charles Wesley. It is performed to one of several tunes, including “Stuttgart” (attr.[1] to Christian Friedrich Witt) and “Hyfrydol” (by Rowland Prichard). It is hymn number 66 in the Episcopal Church hymnal (set to “Stuttgart”);[2] hymn number 196 in the United Methodist Hymnal (to “Hyfrydol”); hymns 1 (to “Stuttgart”) and 2 (to “Hyfrydol”) in the 1990 Presbyterian Hymnal;and hymn 254 in Evangelical Lutheran Worship, among others. The hymn is considered an enduring classic in Christian hymnology.

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.
