Lover Herren! Han er nær

Representative Text

1 Lover Herren! han er nær,
Naar vi synge, naar vi bede;
Samles i hans Navn vi her,
Er han midt blandt os tilstede.
Lover Herren, gamle, unge,
Pris hans Navn hver Barnetunge!

2 Herre, vær os evig nær!
Vær os nær, naar Sol oprinder,
Og naar Sol og Stjerneskjær
I den dybe Nat forsvinder;
Lad din Aand ei fra os vige,
Til vi se dig i dit Rige!
