1 Hvor gaar du hen,
O søde Himmel-Søn?
O Sjæleven, du hittes vel igjen
For din Moders Sorg og Bøn!

For dig, lille Tolvaars-Barn.

Og med dem kom saa lydig og saa from
Til dit ringe Nazaret,
Lær du mig saa, lyde Gud
Og hans Bud,
Forældre ogsaa med
En ydmyg Kjærlighed,
At jeg, som i Alder, maa
Frem i Herrens Visdom gaa,
Og din Naade evig faa!
