Representative Text

1 Kom, Talsmand, kom,
O søde Hellig-Aand!
Min Sjæl er tom,
Og kan ei trøstes, om
Du ei løser Sorgens Baand;
Thi du selv ved, hvad for Nød
Og hvad stød
Den onde Verden vil

Ved da for mig, at jeg maa
Udi Troens Rustning staa,
Og din kraftig Bistand faa!

2 Om jeg du skal
I Verden tumles om,
Og uden Tal
I denne Jammerdal
Friste Verdens onde Dom,
Dog glæde skal meg hvert Saar,
Som jeg faar,
Thi Aanden trOster mig
Med Jesu Himmerig,
Og at jeg ved Jesu Blod
For min Sorrig skal faa Bod
Udi Glædens rige Flod.
