Special Message: Come Thou Long Expected Jesus

Come Thou Long Expected Jesus
Isaiah 9:1-7

by Mike Deguzman

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.

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.
