1 Herre, Gud Fader, du vor høi'ste Trøst!
Du er vor glæde og vor Lyst;

2 Kriste, Guds Søn, vor Bei og sande Lys,
Du Hyrde god til Himlens Hus,
Du alle Kristnes Liv og Raad,
Til Salighed os given, men forsmaad!
Mistunde dig aver os!

3 Herr, Gud Helligaand, i Evighed
Bær hos os, og vor Sjæl bered
At Gud vi søge, Raade faa,
I vore Synder lad os ei forgaa!
Mistunde dig over os!
