Representative Text

1 Herre, Gud Fader, du vor høi'ste Trøst!
Du er vor glæde og vor Lyst;
Vor Bøn lad komme for dig ind:
O, spar os og forlad os al vor Synd!
MisKunde dig ovr os!

2 Kriste, Guds Søn, vor Vei og sande Lys,
Du Hyrde god til Himlens Hus,

Til Salighed os given, men forsmaad!

Vær hos os, og vor Sjæl bered
At Gud vi søge, Naade faa,
I vore Synder lad os ei forgaa!
Miskunde dig over os!
