imageThe Thirsty Theologian had the lyrics of “Come Thou Long Expected Jesus,” and I wanted to post as I love how rich and deep they are:

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 ev’ry nation,
Joy of ev’ry 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.

Below is a acapella  version from Chris Tomlin’s album Glory in the Highest: Christmas Songs Of Worship.
