Our Morning Offering – 1 December – Come, O Long-Expected Jesus

Our Morning Offering – 1 December – First Sunday of Advent, Year A

Come, O Long-Expected Jesus

Breviary Lauds Hymn
First Sunday Advent

Come, O 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.come o long expected jesus 1st sunday of advent 1 dec 2019.jpg
