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!

Indeed the comforter has come. His here to comfort every heart, despite the rigours of life, he offers succour to everyone.

I knew this song as far back as 30 years ago. I was just studying a book by Bishop David Oyedepo, “Anointing for Exploits”, the Bishop was emphasizing the Holy Spirit as the comforter and this hymn just came to mind. In fact I wrote the first line and chorus on the page I was reading, then I quickly went online to search and sing it and played it. Such an inspiring song to enjoy the sweetness of the Holy Spirit the greatest Comforter!
