1 He has come! He has come! my Redeemer has come,
He has taken my heart as His own chosen home;
At last I have given the welcome He sought,
He has come and His coming all gladness has brought.

Joy! joy is mine, my Savior divine,
Comes to abide with me, with me;
Come to abide, ever to abide,
My own loving Savior abideth with me.

2 He has come! He has come! my Love and My Lord,
Every thought of my being is swayed by His word;
He has come! and He rules in the realms of my soul,
And His sceptre is love, O blessed control! [Refrain]

3 He has come to abide, and holy must be
The place where my Lord deigns to banquet with me;
And this is my prayer, Lord, since Thou art come,
Make meet for Thy presence my heart as Thy home. [Refrain]
