Herre Jesus, kom tilstede

Full Text

1 Herre Jesus, kom tilstede,
Vær nu her hos os idag,
Dine Troende du glæde,
Deres Synde-Skuld borttag!
Lam, som Verdens Synder bar,
Du er alt det Haab, vi har.

2 Legem dit, som er hengivet,
Og dit dyrebare Blod
Vorde Dine her til Livet,
Og en Hjertestyrkning god;
Du i dem, og de i dig,
Lad det ske miskundelig!

3 Lad dem løstes, lad dem bærres
Over alle Satans Stød,
Lad al Syndelyst fortærres,
Adam gives hen til Død,
At du selv, o jesus kjær,
Lever, virker i dem her!
