Jesus lad mit Hjerte faa

Representative Text

1 Min Jesus, lad mit Hjerte faa
En saadan Smag paa dig,
At Nat og Dag du vær maa
Min Sjæl umistelig,
Min Sjæl umistelig.

2 Da skrider Naadens Tid og Stund
Saa sød og salig frem,

Og tager til dig hjem,

3 Mit Hjerte i den Grav, du laa
Knust af min Synde-Nød,
Lad, naar det kvelder, Hvile faa,

Og smile ad sin Død!

4 Før saa mig arme Synder hjem
Med din Vetfærdighed
Til dit det ny Jerusalem,
Til al din Herlighed!
Til al din Herlighed!
