Jesus, Jesus, Jesus sigter

Representative Text

1 Jesus, Jesus, Jesus sigter
Alt mit Hjertes Ønske til,
Og sig hermed stærkt forpligter,
At jeg vil, hvad Jesus vil.
Hjertet i ham glad og stil'
Raaber: Herre, som du vil!

2 Han den ene er og bliver,
Som jeg elsker idelig,
Jesus er det, som jeg giver,
Hvad han haver givet mig.
Har dit Blod slukt Vredens Ild,
O saa før mig, som du vil!

3 Synes noget mig at nytte,
Og det ei behager dig,
O saa lad det fra mig flytte,
Giv kun, hvad der tjener mig;
Intet andet paa mig spild,
Giv mig dig, og hvad du vil!

4 Og fuldfør din gode Vilje
I og ved meg Nat og Dag,
Saa skal ingen Nød mig skille
Fra at elske dit Behag;
Hjertet lægger dette til
Midt i Døden som du vil!

5 Jesus, det er mer end meget,
At jeg dig til Gave fik;
tag mit Hjerte som dit eget,
Sæt det i den rette Skik,
At jeg altid frist og mild
Raaber: Herre, som du vil!
