Sunday Mornings | Gardendale Nazarene

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.
–Charles Wesley

The lyrics above were written by the great hymn writer, Charles Wesley. The song continues:

Born Thy people to deliver,
Born a child and yet a King,
Born to reign in us forever,
Now Thy gracious kingdom bring.
By Thine own eternal Spirit
Rule in all our hearts alone;
By Thine all sufficient merit,
Raise us to Thy glorious throne.

This wonderful hymn is a reminder for the people of God who Jesus is and why He came. He came to deliver, to set His people free. He came to release us from fear and sin. He is the desire of every nation.

Celebrate Jesus with us this Advent season! Join us each Sunday morning at 10:30 for worship and preaching of the Word.
