Al Di' la Sinjoro ni iras por preĝi

Full Text

1. Al Di' la Sinjoro ni iras por preĝi,
Por laŭdi Lin supran per buŝo kaj kor'
Ĉar teren Li ĵetis la malamikojn niajn
Do kantu Lian nomon pro Lia honor'!

Spionas tra l' mondo, blekanta leon'
Li serĉas pekulojn, por ruze ilin gluti,
Kaj mort' eterna estas ja nur lia don'.

3. Vin gardu! Persistu en justa batalo!
Evitu la reton de peka mizer'!
Al pia popolo ja Dio ĉiam helpos,
El malfeliĉo tiros, el ĉiu danĝer',
el la danĝer'!
