Gladelig vil vi Halleluja kv'de

Representative Text

1 Gladelig vil vi Halleluja kvæde,
Hjertet skal lege for Herren af Glæde;
Gud giver Synderne til og udsletter,
Tungeste Sorgen af Hjertet os letter!

2 Alt, hvad der lever paa Jorden, skal love
Herren saa liflig som Fuglen i Skove;
Veien og Livet i Kristus er fundet,
Døden og Djævelens Magt overvundet!

3 Alle, som tro, gjør han Miskund og Naade
Trøster og hjælper i værende Vaade,
Trofast i alle de Evigheds Dage
Efter sit Ord, som kan aldrig bedrage.

4 Gud være lovet, os løste af Vaanden!
Gud være lovet med Sønne og Aanden,
Han, som har været og er uden Ende,
Sand Gud, for Syndere salig at kjende!
