Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

225. Don't Resist the Holy Spirit

1 Don’t resist the Holy Spirit,
Sinner, heed His loving voice;
Oh, invite Him to thy bosom,
Peace shall crown that blessed choice.

Refrain:
Come, poor sinner, yield to Jesus,
At His throne of mercy bow;
Oh, the Spirit bids you welcome,
Come, and He will save you now.

2 Don’t resist the Holy Spirit,
For He comes to save thy soul;
Taste His love so kindly given,
Humbly yield to His control. [Refrain]

3 Don’t resist the Holy Spirit,
Do not grieve the gentle Dove;
He will witness sins forgiven,
And the bliss of perfect love. [Refrain]

4 Don’t resist the Holy Spirit,
He has called you oft before;
This may be His final visit,
If you open not the door. [Refrain]
