Representative Text

1 Comfort my people, the Lord hath said,
Tell them the pardon is full and free;
For Christ atoned when His blood was shed,
“Double” He bore on the tree.

Refrain:
Comfort my people,
They shall know,
Guide, to obey my word,
And from it their comfort shall flow.

2 Comfort my people, the Lord hath said,
He like a Shepherd His flock shall feed;
Through pastures vernal they shall be led,
And carried when this is their need. [Refrain]

3 Comfort my people, the Lord hath said,
Wait upon Him and your strength renew;
Then soaring, running, or toiling on,
He safely will carry you through. [Refrain]

4 Comfort my people, the Lord hath said,
Soon He is coming from heav’n again,
When saints, awake or among the dead,
With Him in the glory shall reign. [Refrain]
