Come, Thou Long-Expected Jesus
And I love to share it, too! I'll still be posting other things, but I will be posting some Advent and Christmas music for everyone to enjoy as well. I hope that you will be blessed by its message and by the beauty of the music as we anticipate the celebration of Jesus' birth.
Since today is the first Sunday of Advent, I can think of no more appropriate song than, "Come, Thou Long-Expected Jesus." I have heard this carol sung to a number of different tunes, but the version set to the classic hymn tune, "Hyfrydol" is my favorite. So, here is Twila Paris singing Charles Wesley's classic hymn.
