Hymn History

The classic hymn, “Come, Thou Long Expected Jesus” was written by the famous Methodist hymnist Charles Wesley (1707-1788) in England in 1744. He wrote the hymn with the intent for people to remember Advent and Christmas as commemorating the Nativity of Jesus and preparing for the Second Coming. In 1744, Wesley considered Haggai 2:7 and looked at the situation of orphans in the areas around him. He also looked at the class divide during that period in Great Britain. He first wrote “Come, Thou long Expected Jesus” based upon the scripture in Haggai as a prayer. Later, he adapted this prayer into a hymn and published it in his “Hymns for the Nativity of our Lord” hymnal. The song became known as the first of Wesley’s “Festival hymns,” which became popular across England. Wesley’s hymn has since become a popular Christmas and Advent song world-wide.
