Kom, huldaste förbarmare

Kom, huldaste förbarmare

Author: Anders Carl Rutström
Published in 8 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Kom, huldaste förbarmare,
Som herde i bland fåren,
Och led oss, arma syndare,
Till källorna och såren,
till Sions berg och Sarons bet,
Där i en salig enighet
Hvar trogen själ har trefnad!

2 O kärlekshaf, utgjut din flod
Utöfver allas hjärtan,
Låt kraften af ditt helga blod
Fördrifva otrossmärtan!
Du, hela världens nådastol,
Förvandla med din ljufva sol
Vår köld i evig värma!
