We Have Found The Long Expected


We have found the long-expected, Christ the Saviour, Prince of peace;
He has come with grace and pardon, every captive to release;
In the sunlight of His presence we’re abiding day by day,
While He tells the joyful tidings of the new and living way.

Refrain:
Hallelujah! saints adore Him,
Christ the Saviour, Prince of Peace;
All the angels fall before Him,
And their praises never cease.

O how sweet to know His favor, and how precious is His name!
“The messiah!” we have found Him whom the prophets did proclaim;
There’s a beauty in His presence never yet by mortal told,
And a joy in every lesson which in telling ne’er grows old. [Refrain]

Would you find this loving Saviour and His wondrous grace adore,
Come to Him by faith, believing, enter now the open door;
He’ll receive you, for the promise is recorded in His word,
And your soul will know the gladness of acceptance with the Lord. [Refrain]
