These lyrics by Charles Wesley, of longing for the arrival of Christ, make it a perfect song for the Advent season. For this simple arrangement, I slightly altered the chord progression but retained the familiar "Hyfrydol" melody. Free download of this arrangement with lead sheet and chord chart. Your donation helps support our missions work. Enjoy!


Verse 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.

Verse 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.
