Come, Thou Long-Expected Jesus
One year, in the Christmas program at our church, one of the songs our choir presented was “Come, Thou Long-Expected Jesus.” As
my wife was humming it on the way to church one Sunday, the pacing of the tune reminded me of a hymn that I had sung in years gone
by. After a little research, I discovered that the meter was the same as “Come, Ye Sinners Poor and Needy”. After fitting the words to
the alternate tune, I then only needed to write a two-line refrain.
