Representative Text

1 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.

2 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]

3 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]

4 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]
