Ogsaa mig

Representative Text

1 Herre, du velsigner alle
I din store kjærlighet.
La til meg da også falle
Noen nådesmuler ned!
Også meg, også meg,
Noen smuler skjenk du meg!

2 Stå meg bi, o kjære Fader,
Skjønt mitt hjerte syndig er,
Hjelp at jeg deg ei forlater,
Men deg har av hjertet kjær!
Hjelp du meg, også meg,
Så jeg rett kan elske deg!

3 Kjære Frelser, hjertets lengsel
Er alt mer å likne deg.
Du må rive ned hvert stengsel
Som jeg møter på min vei.
Lær du meg, også meg,
Mer og mer å likne deg.

4 Hellig ånd, du livets kilde,
Guddomsmakt så høy og mild,
Å, at du meg vekke ville,
Tenne meg med åndens ild!
Rens du meg, også meg,
Ved et kraftig ord fra deg!

5 O du herlighetens Herre,
Dra meg mer og mer til deg!
La meg alltid hos deg være,
Og velsign meg på min vei!
Også meg, også meg,
Å, velsign du også meg!
