Advent 2017 | Day 16 | Come, Thou Long Expected Jesus

Today's entry is simple, but powerful. This year, our series for Advent is "Come, Thou Long Expected Jesus." The lyrics to this song speak so much truth. Today, we ask that you take a moment to read and contemplate each word of this wonderful Advent carol written by Charles Wesley. 

Come, Thou Long Expected Jesus
Written by 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 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.
