the shepherd’s and sheep bow low
Come Thou long - expected Son
King of kings, Emmanuel with us.
Oh how I can’t wait to open the gift
laying my crown at Jesus’ feet
how long must we wait our dear Lord
til the coming of Your Word?
I’m eager to see You, I’m eager to know
when the time will be—in the air we’ll see
Your glorious, enchanting appearing!
How I long for the day
what a celebration we’ll have
I can feel You so near as I wait right here.
