Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

323. Come, O Long Expected Jesus

1 Come, O long expected Jesus,
Born to set your people free;
From our fears and sins release us;
Free us from captivity.

2 Israel's strength and consolation,
You, the hope of all the earth,
Dear desire of ev'ry nation,
Come and save us by your birth.

3 Born your people to deliver;
Born a child and yet a King!
Dear desire of ev'ry nation,
Come, and save us by your birth.

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