Representative Text

1 Nu bede vi den Helligaand
Frem for alt om Troen ret og sand,
At vi den bevare
Til vor sidste Ende,
Naar vi skulle fare
Hjem fra al Elende.
Kyrie eleison!

2 Du vœrdig' Lys, giv os dit Skin,
Led os ret til Jesus Kristus ind!
At vi maatte trygge
Hos vor Frelser kjære
Blive, bo og bygge,
Og i Raaden være.
Kyrie eleison!

3 Du søde Aand, send Kjærlighed
Brændende i vore Hjerte ned!
At vi med hverandre,
Udi Kristus fundne,
Maa i eet Sind vandre,
Kjærlig sammenbundne.
Kyrie eleison!

4 Du Trøster bedst i al vor Nød,
Hjælp, vi frygte Djævel ei og Død!
At ei Modet brister
Og vor Sjæl forsager,
Naar den onde Frister
Alt vort Liv anklager!
Kyrie eleison!
