Jesus Krist, vor frelser kjære

Representative Text

1 Jesus Christ, vor Frelser kjære,
Strassen for os vilde bære,
Med sin Pine og sin Død
Han os frelste fra Helveds Nød.

2 At vi mindes det med Glæde,
Gav han os sit Kjød at æde
Skjult i Brødet, og sit Blod
Han os rækker i Vinen god.

3 Hvo til Guds Bord hen vil træde,
Maa sig dertil vel berede;
Hvo uværdig dertil gaar,
Han for Livet kun Døden faar.

4 Du skal Gud, din Fader, prise,
At han vil dig saa bespise,
For din Syndeskyld og Straf
Hani Døden sin Søn hengav.

5 Tro, ot tvivl saa ingenlunde,
At til Syge, ei til Sunde
Jesus rækker denne Mad,
Han vil Sørgende gjøre glad.

6 Slig Barmhjertighed og Naade
Hjertet søger, stedt i Vaade,
Er du karsk, gaa ei derhen,
At ei værre dig hændes end.

7 Selv han siger: Kom du Arme,
Jeg mod dig mig vil forbarme,
Karske trænge ikke til
Hjælpen, som Lægen yde vil.

8 Kunde selv du dig forløse,
Hvi mit Blod før dig udøse?
Dette Bord er ei for dig,
Kan du hjælpe dig uden mig.

9 Tror du fast af Hjertens Grunde
Og bekjender sandt med Munde,
Da er du fuldvel bered,
Æder, drikker til Salighed.

10 Frugten maa ei udeblive,
Næsten elske du i Live,
saa din Vandel Vidne bær'
Om din Naad', dig skjenket er.

Author: Jan Hus

[John Huss] Jan Hus was born in Bohemia (part of the region, along with Moravia, we now call the Czech Republic), ca. 1370. He studied philosophy and theology at Prague University. Though only regarded as an average student, he received an undergraduate degree in 1396 and a Masters in 1398. In 1402 he was ordained as a priest in the Catholic Church and became rector and priest at Bethlehem Chapel.
