Gud Lad os bære megen Frugt

Gud Lad os bære megen Frugt

Representative Text

1 Gud, lad os bære megen Frugt,
Hvortil vor Daab forpligter,
At alt vort Liv i kristen Tugt
Og Tro til Himlen sigter!
Lad mig ved daglig Bøn og Bod
Med Jesu dø saaledes,
At jeg i Kamp med Kjød og Blod
Ei trættes eller kjedes,
Til Salighed beredes!

2 Hjælp, at vi Daabens dyre Pagt
Og Naade aldrig glemme,
Og lad os vores Daabs Foragt
Af ingen mer fornemme!
Men lad den være Hjerte-Trost
Mod al vor Nød og Plage,
Et Vaand, som binder syndens Lyst,
Guds Kraft udi de Svage,–
Saa hjem til Himlen drage!
