246. Mægtigste, Christe, Menighedens Herre

1 Mægtigste Christe, Menighedens Herre,
Den du har tegnet med dit Kors til Ære,
Skynd dig at hjælpe os af Fiendens Snare,
Dit Folk bevare!

2 For du selv Striden for de Børn saa svage,
Dæmp du vor Fiende, driv hans Magt tilbage;
Hvad sig mod dine Lemmer vil ophøie,
Du selv nedbøie!

3 Fred udi Kirken vi af dig begjære,
Fred udi Landet, du os og Beskjære,
Fred udi Hjertet du for Alting give
Hos os at blive!

4 Saa skal din Godhed udi Tiden prises,
Og hisset evig endnu mer udvises;
Himmel og Jord din Godhed skal bekjende,
Til de faa Ende!
