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, 1744
Wesley's glorious hymn, written in 1744, was inspired by Haggai 2:7.
And I will shake all nations, and the Desire of Nations shall come and I will fill this house with glory," saith the Lord of Hosts.
May you find your rest in HIM, the Desire of Nations, as you celebrate this second Sunday of the Advent season!
