7. I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another comforter,
that he may abide with you for ever;
even the Spirit of truth. JOHN 14:16,17.
Come, Holy Spirit, come,
With energy divine,
And on my poor benighted soul,
With beams of mercy shine.
Walk in the Spirit. GAL. 5:16.
8. I will not leave you comfortless; I will come to you. JOHN 14:18.
While my spirit within me is pressed
With sorrow, temptation, and fear,
Like John, I would flee to thy breast,
And pour my complaints in thine ear.
Abide in him; that when he shall appear, we may have confidence,
and not be ashamed before him at his coming. 1 John 2;28.
9. If a man love me, he will keep my words; and my Father will love him,
and we will come unto him,
and make our abode with him. JOHN 14:23.
One there is above all others,
Well deserves the name of Friend;
His is love beyond a brother’s,
Costly, free, and knows no end,
They who once his kindness prove,
Find it everlasting love.
He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings. JOHN 14:24.
