O hellige treenighed

Representative Text

1 O hellige Treenighed,
Du Lys, som ei af Nedgang veed!
Din Sol er slukt, lad i vort Sind
Dit Guddoms Lys gaa saligt ind!

2 Din Lov er aarle os i Mund,
Og yndmyg Bøn om Aftenstund,
Igjennem Tiden tung og trang
Dig priser, Gud, vor arme Sang!

3 Gud Fader evig Ære ske,
Guds Søn, som vilde til os se,
Gud Helligaand, vor Trøst og Fred,
Lov, Tak og Pris i Evighed!
