Comforter

O spread the tidings ’round, 
wherever man is found,
Wherever human hearts 
and human woes abound;
Let every Christian tongue 
proclaim the joyful sound:
The Comforter has come!
by Frank Bottoms, 1890

Comforter: Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener, Standby, Holy Spirit

Interesting fact: This hymn was a favorite at the Azusa Street Revival  in Los Angeles 1906-1909
