* He comes, with a sov’reign sway *

I am looking for the source of the following hymn:

But comes, and with a sov’reign sway,
Drives darkness, death, and hell away;
Takes up his dwelling in the heart,
And bids each enemy depart.

I have found this stanza alone quoted in On Offering the Gospel by William Tant, 1837. I am guessing it is part of a longer hymn, but cannot find such. I would love to find the author and source, and the rest of the hymn. Any help will be much appreciated!
