"Good things come to he (him) who waits."

Posted by E. G. Baller on July 14, 2006

I've seen the proverb written with two grammatical constructions: "Good things come to he (him) who waits." Does "him" function as object of the preposition and "who waits" as the adjective clause describing "him" or is "he" is apposition with "who" and thus the whole clause "he who waits" function as the object of the preposition? We need an answer to this question of grammar. Thanks
