In this video Sam Baucom, Selwa Lukoskie, and the CITYLIGHT band give you a peek into the music that they are preparing for the Joy In The City concert!
Come Thou Long Expected Jesus is a sacred advent hymn written by Charles Wesley in the 1700s. Worship Leader Sam Baucom has written this fresh arrangement with the desire to honor the past while breathing life into the future. CLWorship believes that he's done just that! It's our prayer that you enjoy this music and worship with us; at home, at work, in your missional community, in the gym, in the car, or wherever you are.
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.
