Lyrics

Come in, come in, O Savior mine,
Come in and dwell with me;
My heart, my life, henceforth are Thine;
Come in and dwell with me.

Refrain

Come in, come in and dwell with me,
I yield my all to Thee;
My heart, my life, henceforth are Thine;
Come in and dwell with me.

My soul from ruin Thou hast brought;
Come in and dwell with me;
I’ve found the rest that long I’ve sought,
Come in and dwell with me.

Refrain

Cast every idol far away;
Come in and dwell with me;
Fulfill Thy promise, Lord, today;
Come in and dwell with me.

Refrain

The bolted door is open wide;
Come in dwell with me;
Forever here my guest abide;
Come in and dwell with me.
