1 Gud, lad dit Ord i Naade lykkes
Og vokse baade Dog og Nat,
Men kvæles og med Rod oprykkes
Hver Plantning du ei selv har sat1
Al Satans Løgn og Lærdom knus,
Med Aand og Sandhed fuld dit Hus!

2 Lad ingen falsk Profet forvilde
Os bort i Nattens sure Nød,
Lad ingen Lærdom vrang forspilde
Vor Trøst af Jesu dyre Død!
Jag bort hver Ulv i Faare-Ham!
O Hyrde god, vogt dine Lam!

3 Opklar de Taager, som udspindes
Af Uforstand og Mande-Vid,
Dræb al den Hovmed, som der findes,
Gjør Vantro stum, som volder Strid!
Driv Hukleri til Helved bort,
Atl Sandt og Godt lad vokse stort!

4 Guds Ord er dyre for os vundet
Ved Guds trofaste Vidners Blod,
Det var som tabt, men er gjenfundet,
Vi har den Skat og Perle god,
For hvilken de gav al Tinghen,
Gud lad os vel fornare den!

5 O, lad det gaa i Arv og Eie
Til vore Børn i tusind led,
Og vise os de rette Veie
At finde Naade, Trøst og Fred,
Og hjælpe alle ind til Gud,
Saa har det ført sin Gjerning ud!
