1 Like the clouds of the night
From the dawn’s golden light,
All my doubtings have pass’d away;
Now within me will shine
Beams of mercy divine,
Since Jesus came in to stay.

Refrain:
Since Jesus came in to stay,
My night has been turn’d today;
What a love He hath shown,
What a joy I have known,
Since Jesus came in to stay.

2 Since I opened the door
To the life evermore,
Hallelujah, I now obey;
There’s deliverance from sin,
Grace, the battle to win,
Since Jesus came in to stay. [Refrain]

3 I have peace with my God,
And His love, shed abroad,
While I’m going along the way;
Singing praise to my King,
Love will mount on the wing,
Since Jesus came in to stay. [Refrain]
