138. The Spirit is Pleading

1 The Spirit is gently pleading,
O sinner, come today;
Since all things are ready, waiting,
The message of mercy obey.

The Spirit is pleading,
So tenderly pleading,
For you interceding,
The Spirit is pleading for you.

2 Like dew on the drooping blossom,
The “still, small voice” of love;
It offers the “great salvation,”
A place in the kingdom above. [Chorus]

3 Let Jesus, the mighty Savior,
Your inmost will control;
Come, trusting His invitation,
And peace, like a river, shall roll. [Chorus]

4 The Spirit is gently pleading,
O sinner, heed His voice!
Come humbly to Calv’ry’s fountain,
In Jesus your heart shall rejoice. [Chorus]
