A Great Christmas Carol

The Jingle-Bells may be fun to sing. The Fa-la-la's may be be easy to hum. Yet, when it comes to great Christmas carols, very few modern carols can match the majesty and the theological richness of this hymn, "Come Thou Long Expected Jesus." Written in 1745 by Charles Wesley, it has been one of the most powerful hymns of praise and declaration of the one who is "Born a Child and yet a King." Charles is an amazing hymn writer. Writing about 7500 hymns in his lifetime, that translates to an average of 1 hymn every other day. I have selected a beautiful instrumental rendition of this hymn. You can follow the words below.
