Representative Text

1 I Kristne, som bekjende
Den Guds enbaarne Søn,
Ser, han til os vil sende
En Gave som er skjøn:
Den værdig' Helligaand,
Som os al Sandhed lærer,
Som troens Gnist formerer,
Og Jesus vise kan!

2 Gud gav sit Ord det rene,
Som viser os vor Synd,
Ved det og Aanden ene
Faa vi Guds Kundskabs Fynd.
O store Miskundhed!
Nu kan vi Jesus kjende,
Nu kan vort Hjerte brænde
Til Gud i Kjærlighed!

3 Den samme du, o Herre,
I Hjertet prente saa,
At vi ei fra din Lære
Og Guds Ords Veie gaa!
Lad dine Læbers Lyd
Os saa i Øren klinge,
At Sjælen sig maa svinge
Til dig i Aandens Fryd!

4 O Hjertens rette Glæde,
Du værdig' Himmelgjest,
Naar Korset vil tiltræde,
Vær du da Hjertet næst!
Ja og i Dødens Krig,
Naar Kraften vil forsvinde,
O lad da Troen vinde
Og vorde seierrig!
