1. 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.

2. 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]

3. 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]
