HYMN 387

H.C 261 (FE 410)
“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
