1 Eia, hvor vel
Du veed min Tarv og Trang
Til Liv og Sjæl,
Du min Immanuel!
Hold min Fod udi din Gang!

Af liden Mad
Fem tusind Mænd i Rad
Mættes ved min Jesu Haand.
Tænk, at din Del er i glemt,
Og bortgjemt,
Du faar til Nøisomhed,
Hvad Gud dig gavnlight veed;
Kan du Herre-Bord ei naa
Tak, at du paa
Græs og Straa
Kan Guds Kurv og Levning faa.
