1 Since the Comforter came,
Kindling love’s holy flame,
Waking songs of thanksgiving and praise;
There’s a peace in my heart
Earth could never impart,
Strength to follow the Lord in His ways.

Refrain:
Since the Comforter came to my heart,
Bidding sin and its darkness depart;
Sweet promises shine,
With glory divine,
Since the Comforter came to my heart.

2 Since the Comforter came,
O what pow’r in the name
Of my blessed Redeemer and King;
There’s a witness within
Of salvation from sin,
Deeper knowledge of Jesus to bring. [Refrain]

3 Since the Comforter came,
Surest guidance I claim;
He will lead me to usefulness here;
By the pow’r of His might,
I shall serve with delight,
Till the portals of light shall appear. [Refrain]
