Joy of Every Longing Heart

A few weeks ago, I wrote a post about making an effort to turn the Christmas carols we hear all around us into true worship songs.

On Sunday morning, I was so touched by the song below, and I hope it ministers to your heart as well.  I LOVE this version—no bells and whistles, just pure worship.  Take a minute today to pause and ponder just how incredible it is that the Joy of every longing heart is here and He is madly in love with you.

Come, Thou long expected Jesus
Born to set Thy people free;
From our fears and sins release us,
Let us find our rest in Thee.
Israel’s strength and consolation,
Hope of all the earth Thou art;
Dear desire of every nation,
Joy of every longing heart.
