7364. When the Comforter Came

1. My heart, that was heavy and sad,
Was made to rejoice and be glad,
And peace without measure I had,
When the Comforter came.

Refrain
Peace, sweet peace,
Peace when the Comforter came!
My heart that was heavy and sad,
Was made to rejoice and be glad,
And peace without measure I had,
When the Comforter came.

2. To sin and to evil inclined,
With darkness pervading my mind,
No rest I could anywhere find,
Till the Comforter came. [Refrain]

3. The voice of thanksgiving I raised,
The Lord, my Redeemer, I praised;
I was at His mercy amazed,
When the Comforter came. [Refrain]
