Representative Text

1 Kimer, I Klokker, ja kimer før Dag i det Dunkle!
Tindrer, I Stjerner, som Engelenes Øine kan funkle!
Fred kom til Jord,
Himmelens Fred med Guds Ord,
Æren er Guds i det Høie!

2 Julen er kommen med Solhverv for Hjertene bange,
Jul med Guds-Barnet i Svøb under Engelenes Sange
Kommer fra Gud,
Bringer os Glædskabens Bud!

Menneske-Børnene alle til Jorderigs Ender!
Født er idag
Barnet til Guds Velbehag!
Æren er Guds i det Høie!
