Representative Text

1 I Fred er jeg nu faret hen,
Jeg fundet har min Hjertens Ven
Den Frelser, Gud har mig bered,
Et Lys for al sin Kristenhed;
Nu sover jeg godt i min Grav,
Til selv han vækker mig deraf.

2 Opstandelsen og Livet vist

Om end hans Legems Liv forgaar,
Og hvo som lever og som tror,
Skal aldrig dø, det er Guds Ord.
