Kirkpatrick(1838-1921) capo on 3rd fret THE COMFORTER HAS COME VERSE 1: G G7 C O spread the tidings ’round, wher-ever man is found, G Em D Wher-ever human hearts and human woes a-bound; G G7 C Let ev’ry Christian tongue pro-claim the joyful sound: G/D D7 G The Comfort-er has come! CHORUS: G G7 C The Comforter has come, the Comforter has come! G Em D The Holy Ghost from heav’n, the Father’s promise giv’n; G G7 C O spread the tidings ’round, wher-ever man is found— G/D D7 G The Comfort-er has come! VERSE 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! (REPEAT CHORUS) VERSE 3: Lo, the great King of kings, with healing in His wings, To ev’ry captive soul a full deliverance brings; And through the vacant cells the song of triumph rings; The Comforter has come! (REPEAT CHORUS) VERSE 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! (REPEAT CHORUS)Home
