O blessed comforter draw near!

O blessed comforter draw near!

Author: Paul Henkel
Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

1 O Blessed comforter draw near!
Bestow thy grace divine:
We dedicate this infant here,
To be forever thine.

2 And as this water is appli'd,
So let thy grace by giv'n;
Until this child be sactifi'd
And made the heir of heav'n.
