152. To Thee, O Comforter divine

1 To Thee, O Comforter divine,
For all Thy grace and power benign,
Sing we Alleluia!
To Thee, Whose faithful love had place
In God's great covenant of grace,
Sing we Alleluia!

2 To Thee, Whose faithful voice doth win
The wandering from the ways of sin,
Sing we Alleluia!
To Thee, Whose faithful power doth heal,
Enlighten, sanctify, and seal,
Sing we Alleluia!

3 To Thee, Whose faithful truth is shown,
By every promise made our own,
Sing we Alleluia!
To Thee, our Teacher and our Friend,
Our faithful Leader to the end,
Sing we Alleluia!

4 To Thee, by Jesus Christ sent down,
Of all His gifts the sum and crown,
Sing we Alleluia!
To Thee, Who art with God the Son,
And God the Father ever One,
Sing we Alleluia!
