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

1
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!
2
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!
3
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!
4
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!

Indeed, He is our Comfort. He is the Comforter of the comfortless. The only HOPE of the whole world. Thank God I'm of part. God bless you for this site.

It’s a matchless grace divine: first He bestowed a love upon me that I could be called His son. And now His Comforter to help me shine in His image.

God is love, brethren.

The Comforter is here. He has come - the promised Holy Spirit from the Father. Thank You Father for giving us Your very own Spirit that men might know God and partake of His life.

May this Christian tongue of mine proclaim the joyful sound : The Comforter has come! Glory to God! Amen!
