my favorite.

This is my favorite advent the words, they're fabulous.

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.
