The Comforter Has Come


Oh, spread the tidings ’round, wherever man is found,
Wherever human hearts and human woes abound;
Let every Christian tongue proclaim the joyful sound:
The Comforter has come!

The long, long night is past, the morning breaks at last,
And hushed the dreadful wail and fury of the blast,
As o’er the golden hills the day advances fast!
The Comforter has come!

Lo, the great King of kings, with healing in His wings,
To every captive soul a full deliv’rance brings;
And through the vacant cells the song of triumph rings;
The Comforter has come!

O boundless love divine! How shall this tongue of mine
To wond’ring mortals tell the matchless grace divine—
That I, a child of hell, should in His image shine!
The Comforter has come!

- - Refrain - -
The Comforter has come, the Comforter has come!
The Holy Ghost from Heav’n, the Father’s promise giv’n;
Oh, spread the tidings ’round, wherever man is found—
The Comforter has come!
- - Frank Bottome - -


And I will pray the Father, 
and he shall give you another Comforter, 
that he may abide with you for ever; 
Even the Spirit of truth; 
whom the world cannot receive, 
because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: 
but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
- - John 14:16,17 - -

But when the Comforter is come, 
whom I will send unto you from the Father, 
even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, 
he shall testify of me.
- - John 15:26 - -


- - OIL - -
It is the Holy Spirit
that anoints and sets a believer apart for service.

- - WATER - -
It is the Holy Spirit
that cleanses us from the power of sin.

- - LIGHT - -
It is the Holy Spirit
that guides us in steps of truth and righteousness.

- - FIRE - -
It is the Holy Spirit
that purges and sets our devotion for God ablaze.

- - WIND - -
It is the Holy Spirit
that refreshes our often parched hearts.


Have a blessed Lord's Day, friends!

I loved the oil, water, light, fire and wind depicting the Holy Spirit.
John 15:26 is a wonderful promise from God, one of my favorite Scripture verses.

Just lovely, dear Stephanie. I love that hymn but we've not heard it since we moved here almost 20 years ago. I need to check the hymnal tomorrow night and see if it is in there or not. We sang it alot at the church where we went before moving here.

Gina said...

I've not heard that hymn before, Stephanie. So beautiful! And I love the flowers especially the purple ones!
