God has sent the Holy Spirit To our hearts an honored guest, To deliver us from evil, And to bring us peace and rest; He has come to work within us Heaven’s purposes so blest: He wants His way in thee.
Refrain: Yield unto the Holy Spirit, Let Him have His way in thee; Be thou ready to obey Him, He leads to victory.
Let the Spirit do the planning, Point the way thy feet shall go; Greater than thine own His wisdom, He the will of God doth know; Better, wiser than thy choosing Is the way that He will show: He wants His way in thee.
He doth sometimes work in silence, When thou dost not know at all; He doth sometimes speak so softly Thou must listen for His call; But if thou wilt trust Him fully, He will be thine all in all: He wants His way in thee.
All thyself to Him surrender, As He pleases let Him do; In the paths He leadeth, follow, Whether they be old or new; When the tasks seem hard before thee, He with power will endue: He wants His way in thee.
