Oh, spread the tidings ’round, wherever man is found

Oh, spread the tidings ’round, wherever man is found,
Wherever human hearts and human woes abound;
Let every Christian tongue proclaim the joyful sound:
    The Comforter has come!
  The Comforter has come,
The Comforter has come!
The Holy Ghost from heav’n,
The Lord’s dear promise giv’n;
Oh, spread the tidings ’round,
Wherever man is found—
  The Comforter has come!
The long, long night is past, the morning breaks at last;
And hushed the dreadful wail and fury of the blast,
As o’er the golden hills the day advances fast!
    The Comforter has come!
Lo, the great King of kings, with healing in His wings,
To every captive soul a full deliv’rance brings;
And through the vacant cells the song of triumph rings:
    The Comforter has come!
O boundless love divine! how shall this tongue of mine
To wond’ring mortals tell the matchless grace divine—
That I, a child of hell, should in His image shine!
    The Comforter has come!

Thank God for the Holy Spirit. My prayer is that we will all go out and preach the Gospel. We will bring others to Christ in Jesus name. Thanks for uploading this song and God bless.

For many years I have come to love this classic hymn, and I cannot express enough how much this song has affected my life over the years. This hymn along with Constantly Abiding are among my all time favorite. The lyrics had to be divinely inspired. Glory to God!

This song is powerful. I have no better words to describe the magnitude of this song. The Comforter has come each day. When the Comforter is here the status changes from death to life. Hallelujah!

So comforting lyrics and music.... To God be the Glory... I remember my younger years. Now that I'm old near to face God through Jesus Christ our Lord.

This beautiful Frances Havergal hymn has been a comfort to me for years. Sadly it is not included in many hymnals.

I have been hearing this wonderful song for weeks first at night and now day and night; it has been such a comfort I can feel the peace of God settling on me as I continue through these difficulties... Truly He is my Comforter, my Guide, and my Keeper! Lord I will trust You, I can put all my trust in You! You have no limits; I love You & love Your company!

Comfort oh comfort My people, Says your God. Speak unto the heart of Jerusalem...

What a great promise the Comforter has come, our Saviour upon leaving His disciples said, I will not leave you as orphans; I am coming to you....another Comforter, that He may be with you forever. We have the all-inclusive, life giving, compound, sevenfold Spirit as our daily portion. Wonderful!
