Rather than the lilting waltz feel this text is usually sung to (“Hyfyrdol”), Craig Curry underscores the longing of the text by writing a new tune with a plaintive blues/gospel feel. Flute part included.

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. Come, come, come, long expected Jesus. Oh come, come, come Thou anointed one! 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. (chorus) Come, long expected Jesus Come, long expected Jesus Come, joy of every longing heart Come, joy of every longing heart Come, long expected Jesus Won't you come, thou long expected Jesus. Come, come, come.
