Leave us not comfortless

Tune: LYTE (Wilkes)
Published in 5 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Leave us not comfortless,
O Thou our risen Lord!
But send Thy Spirit down, to bless
And guide us with Thy Word.

2 By Him Thy gifts impart,
Light, peace, and joy, and love;
Seal of adoption in our heart,
Earnest of heaven above.
