R43b. You now must hear my voice no more

1 You now must hear my voice no more;
my Father calls me home;
but soon from heav’n the Holy Ghost,
your Comforter, shall come.
2 That heav’nly Teacher, sent from God,
shall your whole soul inspire;
your minds shall fill with sacred truth,
your hearts with sacred fire.

3 Peace is the gift I leave with you;
my peace to you bequeath;
peace that shall comfort you through life,
and cheer your souls in death.
4 I give not as the world bestows,
with promise false and vain;
Nor cares, nor fears, shall wound the heart
in which my words remain.
