Representative Text

1 Følg Jesus med!
Jeg er din Vandringsmand.
Til Gravens Sted gaar hvert mit Fode-Fjed
Her i Syndens slibrig' Land.
Ak, hold dig nær til min Vei,
Slip dog ei

I Dødens Ler og Lim!
Varm mit Hjerte med din Glød,
Gjør din Tale for mig sød
Om din Pine og din Død.

2 Og lær mig saa,
At du igjen opstod
Af Gravens Vraa, og kunde træde paa
Slangens Hals og Dødens Braad!
Tænd i min Sjæl op din Glød,
Og gjør død
Alt Syndens giftig' Frø,
Og lær mig daglig dø!
Bliv mig ogsaa mild o blid!
Thi min Afgangs Aftentid
Lækker mer og mere hid.
