Herre, bevar og velsigne din Ager

Representative Text

1 Herre, bevar og velsigne din Ager,
Plantet med Ordets den himmelske Sæd!
Lad ikke Stormen, som over den drager,
Bryde den Spire, som endnu en spæd!
Vi kunde plante og vande alene,
Væksten fremkalder din skabende Aand,
Renser for Torner og Tidsler og Stene
Ageren selv med en naaderig Haand.

2 Giv os da Lykke med Plantningens Møie,
Vis os de sandeste Veie at gaa!
Velsign os alle, som staar for dit Øie,
Her i din Menighed, Store og Smaa!
Giv os at glædes, o Herre, du milde,
Over din Sæd og dens Vækst i vor Jord,
Livets den rige Velsignelses Kilde
Gyde du over din Kirke i Nord!
