202. The Comforter Has Come

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

Chorus:
The Comforter has come,
The Comforter has come!
The Holy Ghost from Heav’n,
The Father's promise giv’n;
O spread the tidings round,wherever man is found—
The Comforter has come!

2 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! [Chorus]

3 Lo, the great King of kings, with healing in His wings,
To ev’ry captive soul a full deliv’rance brings;
And thro’ the vacant cells the song of triumph rings;
The Comforter has come! [Chorus]

4 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! [Chorus]
