Hymn: WS 705: Come, O Long-Expected Jesus

1. Come, O long expected Jesus,
Born to set Your people free;
From our sins and fears release us;
By Your death on Calvary.

2. Born your people to deliver;
Born a child and yet a King!
Born to reign in us forever,
Now Your gracious kingdom bring.

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