Suggested Tune STUTTGART (8.7.8.7.) by C F Witt


1. Oh, how long, how long we've waited!
Jesus, come and set us free
from the fears and sins we've hated!
You are born so this can be!

2. Strength and Comfort for your people,
life and hope are yours to give.
You are Joy to all who seek you;
You have come that we might live.

3. You are born to bring salvation,
humbly born, though so divine!
You are King, always, forever,
Son of God, of David's line.

4.  Bring your Kingdom to our hearts, Lord
we'll be ruled by you alone!
You are all that we have needed;
by your Spirit, guide us home!
