Representative Text

1 Nu lader os da grave ned
Hans Legem, som i Gud afled,
Og intet Tvilsmaal have paa,
Han skal for Dommedag opstaa.

2 Af Jord han skabt og kommen er,
Til Jord igjen han vorder her,
Af Jorden op han atter staar
Den Dag, da Guds Basune gaar.

3 Hans Sjæl skal leve evig Tid
Hos Gud, som den har frelst og fri't
Fra Satan, Synd og Helveds Nød
Ved sin Søns Jesu Kristi Død.

4 Den Ynk og Jammer, han udstod,
Er kommen til en Ende god,
Han haver baaret Kristi Aag,
Nu er han død, men lever dog.

5 Hans Sjæl den glædes i Guds Borg,
Hans Legem sover uden Sorg
Til Dommedag, da Jesu Ord
Ham reiser uskadt op af Jord.

6 Her var han ned i Jammer lagt,
Der staar han frisk og vel ved Magt
I salig Glæde for Guds Stol,
Og skinner som den klare Sol.

7 Nu lade vi ham sov' i Fred,
Og gange hjem hver til sit Sted,
Og rede os dertil hver en,
Thi Døden kommer, er ei sen.

8 O Herre Jesus Krist, vor Trøst,
Som med dit Blod har os forløst,
Den Miskund du os alle te,
Dig Lov og Pris og Ære ske!
