1 I Kristne, I, som kaldes vil
Guds Børn, o ser alvorlig til,
At I Gud Faders Vilje gjør
Og lever, som det eder bør,
Ja, hvor I er, og hvor I bor,
Da gaa i Jesu Fodespor!

2 O tænker paa hans Kjærlighed,
Og hvad for eders Skyld han led!
Han elsked eder til sin Grav,
Og villig sig i Døden gav
Sin Fader til saa sød en Lugt,
Og eder til en salig Frugt.

3 Aflægger Horeri og Skam,
al Gjerrighed og Verdens Bram,
Lad slem, letfærdig Snak ei gaa
Af eders Mund, men agter paa,
At Aand og Mund opfyldes kan
Med Hjertens Tak og god Forstand.

4 Vil nogen eder virke paa
Med sledske Ord, at I skal gaa
Paa Syndens brede, baned Vei,
Da værer hans Staldbrødre ei,
Thi derfor gaar Guds Bredes Ild
Udover dem, som fare vild.

5 I gik i Mørket længe før,
Men nu er Lysets store Dør
For eder udi Gud lukt op,
Forlader derfor Mørkets Trop,
Og udi Lyset vandrer saa,
Som Lysets Børn det sømme maa!

6 Lad altid Aandens Frugter se,
Som sig udi al Godhed te,
Ja udi al Retfærdighed
Og Sandhed sig at tyde veed,
Saa skal I Ærens Krone faa,
Og ind i Lysets Bolig gaa!
