1 Jeg kommer her, o søde Gud,
Fordi at du har sendt mig Bud,
Til Høittid din og Nadvers Fest,
Hjælp, at jeg er en værdig Gjæst!

2 Jeg kommer her med Hjerte-Graad,
Fordi jeg veed mig ingenRaad
Og Redning i min Syndenød;
Hjælp mig, o Jesus, for din Død!

3 Dersom du Ondskab regne vil,
At staa fordig hvo tror sig til?
Rens mig af mine lønlig' Brøst,
Bær du den arme Synders Trøst!

4 O Jesus, du Guds Lam, som bar
Al Verdens Synd og sonet har,
Hvor ilde jeg endog har gjort,
Kast mig ei fra dit Aasyn bort!

5 O Jesus, du Guds Lam, som bar
Al Verdens Synd og sonet har,
Miskunde dig un overmig,
Miskunde dig evindelig!
