1 Lær mig, Gud, min Synd at kjende,
Og min Skyld mig aabenbar,
At min arme Sjæl kan vende
Sig til dig, som Hjælpen har!
Lad min Længsel daglig stige,
Herre Jesus, til dit Rige,
Lad min Anger, Suk og Savn
Drage mig ind i din Favn.

2 Herre Jesus, hid du træde,
Kom og gjør det godt for mig!
Kom med Aandens Lys og Glæde,
Kom med Fred fra Himmerig!
Lad dit Naade-Smil til Fulde
Smelte Syne-Hjertets Kulde!
At jeg glad med dig til Gjest
Holde kan min Jule-Fest.
