Come Thou Long Expected Jesus
Topic: Sunday Gathering Passage: Genesis 3:14–3:15
We begin our festive series by unpacking the lyrics of 'Come Thou Long Expected Jesus,' originally written in 1744 by Charles Wesley, since reimagined by the excellent Kings Kaleidoscope, and now firmly established as a Centrepoint favourite!
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
