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.
