Representative Text

1 Dit Navn, o Jesu, vinker mig,
At jeg skal komme trøstelig
Og trykke det til Bryst og Barm
I Sjælen ind med Troens Arm.

2 Saa kommer jeg og bøier mig,
O Jesu, Jesu, ned for dig!
Dit Navn, det sOde Jesu Navn,
Jeg bær' med Kys i Hjertets Favn.

3 Dit Navn jeg altid kalder paa,
Ihvor jeg skal i Verden gaa,
Det er mit Værn, min faste Borg,
Der gaar jeg hen i al min Sorg.

4 Naar jeg det sat i Bønnen faar,
Strar Himlen for mig aaben staar;
Jeg bærer det i Sjæl og Sind,
Det b"rer mig iHimlen ind.

5 Gjør Synden Sjæl og Øie vaad,
Da ved min Jesus gode Raad;
Er jeg forstrækket for min Gud,
Saa er dit Navn mit Fredens Bud.

6 Det gjær mig fri og Synden led,
Og skjænker din Retfærdighed;
Thi Jesus er min Naadestol,
Mit Livets Prydelse og Sol.

7 O Jesu Navn, o søde Ord,
Et Pardis paa denne Jord,
En Rose fuld af Livets Kraft,
En Drue fuld af Himmelsaft!

8 O giv dig, jesu, med dit Navn
Heni mit arme Hjertets Favn,
At jeg din Sødhed smage maa
Og paa min Nød en Ende faa!

9 Ja, naar al Verdens TrOst er dOd,
Saa vær du mig des mere Sød!
O Jesu, arme Synd'res Ven,
O drag mig ganske til dig hen!

10 Dit Jesu-Navn, mit Hjertes Skat,
Jeg prise vil ved Dag og Nat,
Jeg prise vil i Liv og Død.
Hjælp selv dertil, o Jesu sød!

Rist, Johann, son of Kaspar Rist, pastor at Ottensen, near Hamburg, was born at Ottensen, March 8, 1607, and from his birth was dedicated to the ministry.
