Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave Himself for me.@Galatians 2:20

If you’ll listen unto me,
A story to you I’ll tell,
How Jesus Christ the Son of God
Came in my heart to dwell;
And by His mighty power
He’s changed my night to day,
And now I’ve a life that’s filled with joy,
Since Jesus came to stay.

Refrain

I bless the happy day
When Jesus came to stay,
And tho’ my sins were crimson red,
He’s taken them all away;
And by His mighty power,
He’s changed my night to day,
And now I’ve a life that’s filled with joy,
Since Jesus came to stay.

Before He came to stay
I had my doubts and fears,
I longed to know the peace and joy
I felt in other years;
Now Satan is cast out,
And every passing day
God gives me strength my foes to meet,
Since Jesus came to stay.

Refrain

Yes, since my Savior came
Within my heart to dwell,
He helps me learn the living way,
And do His blessèd will;
And when at last He sees
My work on earth is done,
I’ll then go shouting home to God,
To receive the crown I’ve won.

Refrain
