Representative Text

1 Since the Comforter has come, ev’ry door is opened wide,
And I welcome Him to reign within my soul;
He has brought the things of Christ and has shown them unto me,
And my life is under His full control.

Refrain:
The Comforter has come to abide;
The Comforter has come to abide;
Of my fully yielded soul
He has taken full control,
For the Comforter has come to abide.

2 Since the Comforter has come, I’ve been guided into truth,
He has taught us ev’rything I ought o know;
And to my remembrance brought precious sayings of my Lord,
And He leads me in the paths I should go. [Refrain]

3 Since the Comforter has come, there is peace within my heart,
I have rest from fretting, worriment and care;
I have pow’r to testify to the Lord who loves me so,
And my faith is mounting on wings of pray’r. [Refrain]
