A note from arranger Don Chapman: New 3rd verse! The original carol only has 2 verses and I always wished there was a 3rd – I had some time this year and thought I’d write one.

Come Thou Long-Expected Jesus is the perfect Christmas carol to use as a call to worship in any December praise set.

Pad: Your aux keys player (if you have one) probably just improvises a simple pad part for your songs, but I wanted to write it out so you can see exactly what I’m doing in the track. It’s the same part for each verse, but you can give it variety by layering / modulating your pad patch for each verse.
