The Spi­rit is wait­ing,
Invite Him to­day,
To en­ter thy heart
And abide there al­way;
Believe Him, re­ceive Him,
Thy dear lov­ing guest,
Thy pro­mise and por­tion,
Thy bless­ing and rest.


The Spi­rit is wait­ing,
The Spi­rit is wait­ing,
Receive Him, be­lieve Him,
Thy dear lov­ing guest.

Secure in His keep­ing
Thy heart shall re­joice;
He calls thee and woos thee,
Oh, make Him thy choice;
Believe Him, re­ceive Him,
Thy trea­sure loved best,
The Com­fort­er wait­eth,
Thy bless­ing and rest.


The joy of the morn­ing
Receive in thy heart,
He long­eth to en­ter
And no more de­part;
He knows thee and loves thee,
Oh, leave thy re­quest,
And wait for His full­ness
Of bless­ing and rest.
