Allevegne hvor jeg vanker

Representative Text

1 Allevegne, hvor jeg vanker,
Jeg min Jesus har i Tanker,
Hvor jeg ligger, sidder, gaar,
Efter ham min Længsel staar.

2 Bort fra Verdens Land at ile,
Mæt af Møie, hjem til Hvile,
Er jeg reisefærdig til,
Naar min søde Jesus vil.

3 Naar jeg med ham skal regjere,
Livsens Krans og Krone bære,
O, hvor vil jeg være glad
I den gyldne Englestad!

4 O, hvor vil jeg da mig glæde,
Naar min Jesus mig vil klæde,
Føre ind paa Himlens Slot,
O, hvad vil det være godt!

5 Da skal Mund og Hjerte klinge
Med min Frelser Lov at bringe
Blandt Udvalgtes Sang og Lyd
I Guds Englers Samfunds Fryd.

6 Fri fra Sorgen, fri fra Nøden,
Fri fra Synden, fri fra Døden,
O, hvor vil jeg være fro
I Guds Englers Samkvems Ro!
