Representative Text

1 Gak Sorg og Klag',
Fryd dig hver christi Lem!
Vor Nød og Sag
Til Faderens Behag
Vil selv Jesus føre frem,
Og hvad vi os til vort Gavn
I hans Navn
Gud Fader bede vil,
Det vil han staa os til;
Har vi glemt at bede før,
Gid vi nu paa Naadens Dør
Ved Guds Aand et Anfald gjør!

2 O Fader sød!
Jeg frem mit Hjerte bær
Alt fuldt af Nød,
For din Søns haarde Død
Fir det ud fra Sorgers Hær!
Aabne, o Jesu, min Mund
Hver den Stund
Jeg Gud paakalde vil,
Og læg din Forbøn til!
Tak, at du os lærte saa
Bønnen, at ved den vi maa
Adgang til Guds Hjerte faa!
