Representative Text

1 O Jesu, kom dit Ord ihu,
Du ser os anndsforladte nu,
Forhungrede, udhuled',
Tænk paa den Trang, vi stande i,
Udsend din Aand, saa skabes vi,
Saa sankes Søndersmulet!

2 Du vil, vi vorde skal til Et.
Din kristne Flok er deelt op spredt,
Og kan ei meer forliges,
Thi Kjærlighed er bleven kold,

3 O Helligaand, gjør Underverk,
Giv Enighed, gjør sund og sterk
I Troen, glad i Haabet,
Taalmodige i Trængsels Tid,
Til Bøn varagtige med Flid,
Hør og idag Nød-Raabet!
