Representative Text

1 Thou art not very far from the kingdom;
Almost thou’rt persuaded today;
Thy heart has been touched by the gospel,
O grieve not the Spirit away.

Refrain:
Grieve not the Spirit away,
Grieve not the Spirit away;
Thou art not very far from the kingdom,
O grieve not the Spirit away.

2 Thou art not very far from the kingdom,
But halting, His voice to obey,
While angels are watching and waiting,
O grieve not the Spirit away. [Refrain]

3 Thou art not very far from the kingdom,
Just over the border astray;
Yet still is the voice interceding,
O grieve not the Spirit away. [Refrain]

4 Thou art not very far from the kingdom;
Decide! there’s no time for delay;
Accept Him, believe Him, receive Him,
O grieve not the Spirit away. [Refrain]
