“And I will pray the Father, and he shall
give you another Comforter; that he
may abide with you forever" - John 14:16
1. OUR blest Redeemer, ere He breathed
His tender last farewell
A Guide, a Comforter bequeathed
With us to dwell.
2. He came in semblance of a dove
With sheltering wings outspread
The holy balm of peace and love
On each to shed.
3. He comes sweet influence to impart
A gracious, willing Guest
While He can find one humble heart
Wherein to rest.
4. And His that gentle voice we hear
Soft as the breath of even
That checks each fault, that calms
each fear. And speaks of heaven.
5. And every virtue we possess
And every conquest won
And every thought of holiness
Are His alone.
6. Spirit of purity and grace
Our weakness, pitying, see
O! make our heart Thy dwelling
place. And meet for Thee. Amen
