1 “I will not leave you comfortless,”
But if I go away,
Will send the Holy Comforter,
Your royal Guest forevermore,
Abiding day by day.
Has he come to you, to you, to you?
Has the Comforter come to you?
The Lord will reprove the world of sin,
When the Comforter comes to you.
2 Church of the Living God arise
The fullness to receive,
Until the lost in ev’ry place
Shall feel the need of saving grace,
And shall on Christ believe. [Refrain]
3 God’s skies are full of Pentecosts,
For you, for me, for all;
Then let us humbly, boldly press,
Our heritage in Christ possess,
That pow’r from heav’n may fall. [Refrain]
4 Then quickly “back to Pentecost,”
That blessed upper room;
And pray the mighty Lord of Hosts,
To send on us the Holy Ghost,
And tarry till he come. [Refrain]
