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.

Refrain

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.

Refrain

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.

Refrain
