By Request, ‘Come, Thou Long-Expected Jesus’

And we have an Advent hymn request from Laura: Come, Thou Long-Expected Jesus, written by Charles Wesley, published in 1745, and here performed by the St. John’s College Choir, Cambridge.

It can also be sung to the Welsh melody, “Hyfrydol,” one of my favorites–but this is quite nice, wouldn’t you say?

  1. Love this. Thanks!
    I’ve always sung it to the other tune as well, which I think sounds a bit more Christmas-y; but both tunes are beautiful.
