Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Come, O thou blessed Comforter

Come, O thou blessed Comforter

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Come O thou blessed comforter,
Thy precious gifts on us confer;
Thy glorious light to us reveal,
And cause each heart thy love to feel.

2 May we like the Disciples be:
Who earnestly did wait on thee;
Until thy promises were giv'n
Thy gifts on them sent down from heav'n.

3 May we like they, be fill'd with joy,
Like they, our efforts all employ;
To sing thy praise, and shew thy love,
Thy wonders and thy blessings prove.

4 Thy heav'nly aid and quick'ning pow'rs
Can warm these frozen hearts of ours:
Likewise afford us, life and heat,
To conquer every foe we meet.

5 To feel thy love is life indeed!
Thy gifts and grace is all we need:
To make us happy in thy ways
And fit us for to sing thy praise.
