Come Thou Long Expected Jesus

from Christmas Hymns by Jason Harrod



The lyrics to this hymn are by Charles Wesley, the same guy that gave us "Hark the Herald Angels Sing." I's set to a Welsh tune called Hyfrydol, which looks like it's pronounced like the sound an old man makes when he coughs. Wesley only wrote two verses, which is not enough, so I added one more, the one that says:

"When the world was steeped in darkness
When the world had lost its way
No hope in sight
No breath of light
You broke forth like break of day."

this world; he finds deep secrets in ordinary places.” — Image Journal
