1 Open your heart to the Spirit’s entreating;
Welcome Him in! Welcome Him in!
List to His wings at your heart’s windows beating,
Welcome the Spirit in!

Refrain:
Welcome Him in, He has blessing untold;
Welcome Him in, peace your heart shall enfold;
Welcome Him in, love your spirit shall hold,
Welcome the Spirit in!

2 Life all divine doth the Spirit now proffer;
Welcome Him in! Welcome Him in!
Life that’s eternal—accept now His offer,
Welcome the Spirit in! [Refrain]

3 Fruits more than golden this Spirit will yield you;
Welcome Him in! Welcome Him in!
Love, peace and joy when His grace shall have sealed you
Welcome the Spirit in! [Refrain]

4 He is a friend that abideth forever;
Welcome Him in! Welcome Him in!
He brings a comfort that faileth you never,
Welcome the Spirit in! [Refrain]
