Lyrics

Come in, come in, O blessèd One;
My heart is all Thine own;
Here make Thy constant dwelling place,
Thy temple and Thy throne.

Refrain

Hallelujah, hallelujah,
For the grace that makes me free;
Hallelujah, hallelujah,
Hallelujah, Lord, to Thee.

Come in, come in, O blessèd One;
Thou King of kings divine;
My life, my will, my every power,
Without reserve are Thine.

Refrain

Come in, come in, O blessèd One;
Whose name the angels praise,
While mortal tongues in humbler strains,
Their grateful tribute raise.

Refrain

Come in, O sun of righteousness,
And source of endless day,
Thou Lamb of God, whose cleansing blood
Has washed my sins away.
