Naar, søde Jesus, komme dine tider

Representative Text

1 Naar, søde Jesus, komme dine Tider
Til Fred for Israel, som vildsom Skrider?

2 Naar skal din Pris af disse blive sunget,
Hvis Fædre have dig igjemmenstunget?

3 Ak, maatte det dog snarlig for dem dages,
Og Dækket bort fra deres Øine tages!

4 Og de faa kjende, hvad i Thomas lyned,
Der Jesus sod og sine Saar ham syned!

5 Da havde vi igjen den ældre Broder
At dele med os Faderhusets Goder.

6 Hvad vilde det for Halleluja give,
en Lammets Lov i Evigheder blive!
