Keith & Kristyn Getty Come, Thou Long Expected Jesus Lyrics

[Intro/Spoken]
The people walking in darkness have seen a great light
For to us a Child is born
To us a Son is given
And the government will be on His shoulders
And He will be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace

[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 dеsire of every nation
Joy of еvery 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 own sufficient merit
Raise us to Thy glorious throne

[Outro]
By Thine own eternal spirit
Rule in all our hearts alone
By Thine own sufficient merit
Raise us to Thy glorious throne
