Don't Resist the Holy Spirit

Representative Text

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

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]
