1 Mægtigste Kriste, Menighedens Herre,
Den du har tegnet med dit Korst til "re,
Skynd dig at hjælpe os af Fiendens Snare,
Dit Folk bevare!

2 Fred udi Kirken vi af dig begjære!
Fred udi Landet, Herre Gud, lad være!
Fred udi Hjertet du for alting give
Hos os at blive!

3 Fred udi Kirken vi af dig begjære!
Fred udi Landet, Herre Gud, lad være!
Fred udi Hjertet du for alting give
Hos os at blive!

4 Gjennem af Tiden skal din Godhed prises,
Og bisset evig endnu mer udvises,
Himmel og Jord din Miskund skal bekjende,
til de faa Ende!
