The Comforter Has Come
Words by Frank Bottome

John 15:26
"But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father,
even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:"

          O spread the tiding 'round, wherever man is found,
          Wherever human hearts and human woes abound;
          Let ev'ry Christian tongue proclaim the joyful sound;
          The Comforter has come!

            Chorus
            The Comforter has come, the Comforter has come,
            The Holy Ghost from Heav'n, the Father's promise giv'n;
            O 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!

            Chorus
            The Comforter has come, the Comforter has come,
            The Holy Ghost from Heav'n, the Father's promise giv'n;
            O spread the tidings 'round, wherever man is found.
            The Comforter has come!

          Lo, the great King of kings, with healing in His wings,
          To ev'ry captive soul a full deliv'rance brings;
          And thro' the vacant cells the song of triumph rings;
          The Comforter has come!

            Chorus
            The Comforter has come, the Comforter has come,
            The Holy Ghost from Heav'n, the Father's promise giv'n;
            O spread the tidings 'round, wherever man is found.
            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!
