1 Jeg nu evig haver Livet,
Thi mig udi Brød og Vin
Jesu Kjød og Blod er givet,
Jeg er hans, og han er min;
Jeg ei dør en evig Død,
Kommer ei til Dommens Nød
Jesu Værdskyld mig bedækker,
Og paa Dommedag opvækker.

2 Gud, du som idag mig haver
Bederkvæget til min Trøst
Med de Kjærlighedens Gaver,
Hvormed du mig har forløst,
Med min Jesu Kjød og Blod,
Du nu og med Hvile god
Sjæl og Legeme husvale,
Dem jeg dig nu vil befale.

3 Jesus, du min gode Hyrde,
Mig, dit Faar, bevar i dig,
Lad mig Satan ikke myrde,
Thi jeg har dig selv i mig;
Glæd mig ofte som idag,
Lad mig bedres til Behag,
Og udi dit Hegn faa hvile,
Fri fra Satans Morderpile!

4 Herren, som gav Mad til Livet,
Signe og bevare mig!
Herren, som mig har bered,
Give mig sit Aasyns Fred!
Herren, Herren, Herren give
Mig sin Eiendom at blive1
