1 Deilig er Jorden,
Prægtig er Guds Himmel,
Skjøn er Sjælens Pigrimsgang!
Gjennem de fagre
Riger paa Jorden
Gaa vi til paradis med Sang!

2 Tider skal komme,
Tider skal henrukke,
Slægt skal følge Slægters Gang;
Aldrig forstummer
Tonen fra Himlen,
I Sjælens glade Pilgrimssang.

3 Englene sang den
Først for Markens Hyrder,
Skjønt fra Sjæl til Sjæl det lød!
Fred over Jorden,
Menneske fryd dig,
Os er en evig Frelser fød!
