Aldrig er jeg uden Vaade

Representative Text

1 Aldrig er jeg uden Vaade,
Aldrig dog foruden Naade.
Altid har jeg Suk og Ve,
Altid kan jeg Jesus se.

2 Altid trykker mine Synder,
Altid Jesus Hjælp tilskynder,
Altid er jeg udi Tvang,
Altid er jeg fuld af Sang.

3 Nu i Sorg og nu i Glæde,
Nu i Fald og nu i Sæde,
Ofte fuld af stor Uro,
Altid fuld af Jesu Tro.

4 Saa er Sorg og Glæde lænket,
Sødt og Surt for mig iskjænket
I mit Levnets Omgangs-Skaal,
Saadan er it Levnets Maal.

5 Men, O Jesus, jeg vil græde,
Hjælp du til, at Troens Glæde
Fremfor Synd og Sorger maa
Altid Overvegten faa.
