My life was once so very drear
Because ’twas filled with guilt and fear;
But now I have full liberty,
Since Jesus came to dwell with me.

Refrain

Since Jesus came to dwell with me,
Since Jesus came to dwell with me,
I’m not my own, I’m His alone;
Since Jesus came to dwell with me.

From sins that once did hold full sway
I now have fully turned away,
For I have gained the victory,
Since Jesus came to dwell with me.

Refrain

To tell to those in sin and shame,
Of Christ my Savior’s cleansing fame,
Shall my great aim and duty be,
Since Jesus came to dwell with me.

Refrain

And when my task on earth is done,
And I in Heav’n a place have won,
I’ll sing with those of Calvary,
Since Jesus came to dwell with me.

Refrain
