Herre, oss enhvar välsigna

Representative Text

1 Herre, oss enhvar välsigna,
Hjärtat fyll med fröjd och frid.
Låt enhvar din kärlek äga,
Nåden prisa högt alltid,
Vederkvick oss, vederkvick oss
Uti detta ökenland.

2 Vi hembära pris och ära
För din frälsnings glada bud,
Må den många frukter b¨ra
Hos din här utvalda brud.
Må din ande, må din ande
alltid vara dina när.

3 Och när hembud vi få höra
Kalla oss att lämna här;
Änglar oss på vingar föra
För att evigt vara där.
Må vi redo, må vi redo
Vara då att resa hem.
