๐ŸŽ„ Hymn “Come Thou Long-Expected Jesus” by Charles Wesley

In between the Godless secular songs like “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” and “Up on a Housetop,” you may hear the strains of an old hymn by Charles Wesley called “Come Thou Long-Expected Jesus.” It was written in 1744:

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 own sufficient merit, raise us to Thy glorious throne.

  1. If they do play Christmas music in the mall, they usually play instrumentals….so no one hears the words. When I was a child, we used to go caroling in the neighborhood. That doesn’t happen anymore either.

    • Wow, iโ€™d have loved to of heard you singing the carols, your voice is beautiful! ๐Ÿ™‚
      Yes itโ€™s sad the powerful and truthful words are being dissolved to along with the Christmas message. Sarah & i have lived in our home for 7 years and never had carol singers once! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
      Thanks Mary for stopping by and commenting, itโ€™s such a blessing to meet up with you here! ๐Ÿ™‚
