1 Er skibet nu
Og Folk i Fare stedt,
Hvi sover du?
O Jesus, kom ihu,

Vaagn op og hjælp!

Og paa Sorgen gjorde Bod.

2 Jeg ser vel,
at Guds kirke flyde skal,
Og som forladt
Tidt frygte, at hun plat
Drukne maa af
Bølgers Tal;
Dog frydes jeg,
Og er fro Ved den Tro,
At jesus selv er traad
Udi sin Kirke-Baad.
Lad kun Band og Vinde faa
Magt at bryde hardt derpaa,
den skal aldrig dog forgaa.
