1 O believer in Jesus, O child of God,
Has the Comforter come to abide?
Since your sins were forgiven thro’ Jesus’ blood,
Has the Comforter come to abide?

Refrain:
Has the Comforter come to abide?
Has the Comforter come to abide?
Since in Christ you believed and pardon received,
Has the Comforter come to abide?

2 Has the Spirit of Pentecost come to you,
Has the Comforter come to abide?
With His power for service He will endue,
Has the Comforter come to abide? [Refrain]

3 Have you died to the world and to self and sin,
Has the Comforter come to abide?
In the battles of life do you vict’ry win,
Has the Comforter come to abide? [Refrain]

4 Is He constantly with you to help and cheer,
Has the Comforter come to abide?
Does He guide and uphold you and still each fear,
Has the Comforter come to abide? [Refrain]
