230. Ak Fader lad dit Ord, din Aand

1 Ak Fader, lad dit Ord, din Aand
Dog ret saa Overhaand!
Og se hvor fuld din Urtegaard
Af Torn og Tidsel staar!
Din Vekst du har vel her,
Men, ak, hvor tynd den er!
Hvor lidet er dog Kraften kjendt
Af Ord og Sacrament!

2 O Jesu, Jesu, kom dog snart
At se din Vingaards Art!
Af Døbte vrimler Stad og Land
Men hvor er Troens Brand?
Hvad hjælper det, vi veed,
Du Døden for os leed,
Naar vi ei staa mod Satans Verk
I Troen frisk og sterk?

3 O Helligaand, for dig vor Skat
Vi græde Dag og Nat,
Kom, giv os samme Lys og Kraft,
Vor' Formænd før har havt.
Da Kristendommen stod
Som Træ med sterkest Rod
Og Krone fuld af Frugters Sne
Og Purpur! Lad det ske!
