1
THOU holy Comforter, we joy in Thee,
Sent down in answer to our Lord's request.
Deep were Thy feelings when Thou cam'st to be
With us for ever from that day so blest!
2
Spirit of truth, in Thee our minds find rest,
While here in this dark, unresponsive scene;
Thou art for ever with us; O how blest
To know Thee even though Thou art unseen!
3
No eye has seen nor ear has ever heard,
Nor heart of man is great enough to hold
Those wondrous things in love by God prepared,
Which Thou, blest Spirit, lovest to unfold.
4
Nor is this all, for Thou the Earnest art
Of bliss to come, and giv'st us even here
To enter now our glorious heav'nly part,
And taste the joys of that eternal sphere!

R. Peart
