Tune: HYFRYDOL, Meter: 87.87 D

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.
