Knæler, Kristi vidneskare

Representative Text

1 Knæler, Kristi Vidneskare,
Hans Velsignelse annam!
Ser ham op til Himlen fare,
Stirrer, stræver efter ham!
Stander op og ganger ud,
Spreder Sæd og bærer Bud!
Sædetiden snart er omme,
Til sin Høst vil han gjenkomme.

2 Skjuler Skyen ham for eder,
Og formørker Stridens Dag,
Jesu Venner vaager, beder
Sammen under Kirkens Tag!
Synet klares, Hjertets Ve
Haabet mildner, snart I se
Atter ham i Morgenrøden,
Livets Seier over Døden!

3 Herre Jesus, du, som throner
Hos Gud Faders høire Haand,
Syndres Frelser og Forsoner,
Send os nu din Helligaand!
Tænd din Ild og tal dit Ord
Paa den hele vide Jord,
Sank til Troens Enhed sammen
Alle Jordens Ætter! Amen.
