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.
