1 Den onde Aand
Og Djævel maa dog bort,
Ja alle Baand
Bed Jesu Ord og Aand
Briste over snart og kort;
Han aldrig er i hans Værk
End saa stærk,

Bliver af sin Fæstning kast.

2 O Jesu, som
Til Verden kommen er,
At kaste om
Al Satans herredom,
Med din Hjælp vær altid nær,
At Satan ei med sin magt
Og sin Agt
Skal nogen Bolig faa
Udi mit Hjertes Braa;
Lad mit Hjerte lukkes saa,
At hans Pile overgaa,
Lad mig i Guds Harnisk staa!
