HAIL! thou long-expected Jesus,

Born to set thy people free;

Thou from sin and fear released us,

Make us find our rest in thee.

Israel's strength and consolation

Hope of all thy saints thou art;

Long desired of every nation,

Joy of every waiting heart.

Born, thy people to deliver,

Born a child, yet Christ the King,

Born to reign in us forever,

Now thy gracious Kingdom bring.

By thy word and blessed spirit,

Rule in all our hearts alone;

By thine all-sufficient merit,

Raise us to thy glorious throne.

Now we wait for thy appearing,

From the realms of bliss above,

With thy word each other cheering,

Save us Prince of peace and love.
