Come Thou Long Expected Jesus, Born to set Thy people free:
G Em C D G Em C D G
From our fears and sins release us; Let us find our rest in Thee.
G Em C D G Em Am7 D
Israel's strength and consolation, Hope of all the earth Thou art,
G/B Am Em D G/B C G/D D G
Dear desire of every nation, Joy of every longing heart.

G Em C D G Em C D G
Joy to those who long to see Thee, Dayspring from on high appear
G Em C D G Em C D G
Come Thou promised Rod of Jesse, Of Thy birth we long to hear
G Em C D G Em Am7 D
O're the hills the angels singing, News, glad tidings of a birth
G/B Am Em D G/B C G/D D G
"Go to Him, your praises bringing, Christ the Lord has come to Earth."

G Em C D G Em C D G
Come to earth to taste our sadness, He whose glories knew no end
G Em C D G Em C D G
By His life He brings us gladness, Our Redeemer, Shepherd, Friend
G Em C D G Em Am7 D
Leaving riches without number, Born within a cattle stall
G/B Am Em D G/B C G/D D G
This the everlasting wonder, Christ was born the Lord of all.

G Em C D G Em C D G
Born Thy people to deliver, Born a child, and yet a king,
G Em C D G Em C D G
Born to reign in us forever. Now Thy gracious kingdom bring.
G Em C D G Em Am7 D
By Thine own eternal Spirit, rule in all our hearts alone;
G/B Am Em D G/B C G/D D G
By Thine all-sufficient merit, Raise us to Thy glorious throne.
