Nådens Källa

Representative Text

1 Kom, du nådens källa rika,
Till ditt lof mitt hjärta stäm.
Dina flöden aldrig svika,
högt jag vill besjunga dem.
Lär mig någon ljuflig visa,
Nägon himmelsk melodi.
Att jag må din kärlek prisa,
Som från domen köpt mig fri.

2 Här vill jag mitt Ebeneser
Resa, ty du halp mig hit.
Och mot hemmet nu jag reser,
Du mig hjälper också dit.
När jag låg i mitt elände,
Du mig sökte, huld och god.
när mitt hjärta vreden brände,
Du mig löste med ditt blod.

3 Ack jag mycket har att nåden
Tacka för hvarenda dag.
Herre, som en kedja låt den
Binda mig vid ditt behag.
Jag til synd är så benägen,
Till att fara vill så böjd.
Tag mig, gör mig till din egen
Och mig göm till himlens fröjd.
