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!

To wond’ring mortals tell the matchless grace divine—

That I, a child of hell, should in His image shine!"

i first heard this song during one PFN meeting at Tafawa Balewa Square in Lagos, Nigeria about 20 years ago and since then it left a permanent fire in spirit. Let the tidings be spread round wherever man is found that the Comforter has indeed come. He has come to stay and never to depart. Praise God.

Some nights are unnecessarily long. Of course, they are nights of sin and of self. In a man's night, the sun sets over him which leads him into moments and days of dee, inner struggles with the will and counsel of Christ whom is Lord.

But when the sun rises over him, "the long long night is past," Then and then only has the comforter come to him. Lord, prevail with my life!

The Holy Spirit is surely the greatest Comforter; a glorious hymn.
