How Do I Add a Purchased Song To My iTunes Music Library

I purchased a song in iTunes more than a few weeks ago. Somehow, it doesn’t show in my Library in iTunes (I must have done something to remove it??). If I view the album and song in iTunes it says “Purchased” and I can play it, but it would be nice to have the album/song/artist show in my Music Library.

I have a 15″ Retina MacBook Pro Nov 2014

MacOS is El Capitan v10.11.6
My iTunes is

    When you purchase a song, it should download and appear in your music library. It may take a few seconds (or minutes) for it to download. It should also be listed on your purchases screen. Is it?
    How are you playing it if it isn’t in your library, though? You can’t play songs from the iTunes Store, you have to switch to your library to do that. So if you are playing the song then you are probably looking at it in your library, right? Maybe you are viewing only one genre or artist in your library instead of the whole thing?
