Kjærlighed er lysets kilde

Representative Text

1 Kjærlighed er Lysets Kilde,
Kjærlighed er Livets Rod,
Derfor er Guds Raad saa milde,
Derfor er Guds Aand saa god,
Som vor Frelser har forklaret,
Aanden selv os aabenbaret,
Som vi føler i Guds Fred
Og det Haab, vi trøstes ved.

2 Kjærlighed er Livets Krone,
Kjærlighed er Lysets Glans,
Derfor sidder paa sin Throne
Jesus nu med Straalekrans,
Han, som Lyset er og Livet,
Har for os sig selv hengivet,
Bliver i og lever ved
Guds, sin Faders, Kjærlighed.

3 Kjærlighed er Lovens Fylde
Og Fuldkommenhedens Baand,
Den er, hvad vor Gud vi skylde,
Den er Frugten af hans Aand,
Derfor med Guds-Kjærligheden
Vokser op omkap Guds-Freden,
Vorde kan vi og ved den
Et med Sjælens bedste Ven.
