1 Der Vei, der ind til Jesus gaar,
Er salig at betræde;
Man der al Trøstens Kundskab faar,
Og Sjælen fuld af Glæde.
Hans Ord og store Gjerninger
De vise, han Messias er
I Adams Kjød og Klæde.

Spedalske blive rene,
De Døve høre, Død' opstaa
Ved Jesu Ord alene;
Det liflig' Evangelium
Hos Fattige faar Sjæle-rum,
Det Ingen kan formene.

3 O søde Jesus, hvo der kan
forarge sig og støde
Paa dig i din Fornedrings Stand,
Hans Dom skal hannem møde.
Jeg favner dig med Hjertens Tro,
Mit Liv, min Lyst, mig Haab, min ro,
Du al min sorg skal døde!
