Representative Text

1 Nu kommer Vaar
Og salig Velstand snart,
Vor Jesus gaar, og Ordets Sæd udsaar
Med en hellig Himmel-Art.
Dog visner Noget og dør,

2 Gud dyrke saa
Mit Hjertes skarpe Jord,
Jeg med Attraa og Andagt fatte maa
Himlens Sæd og Livsens Ord!
Hold, Jesus, hold Satans Klo

Ryk Vellyst, gjerrigt Mod
Op fra min Hjerte-Rod!
Plant du dig saa, Jesus, ind
I mit Hjerte, Sjæl og Sind,
Og min Frugt til Korset bind!
