1 O Jesus, kom nu til os ind
Og som en Sol for os oprind,
At dine Sandheds Straaler maa
Os dybest ind i Hjertet naa!

2 Væk al den døde Kristenhed
Af søvne op og Sikkerhed,
Og herliggjør dit store Navn
I Verden vidt til Syndres Gavn!

3 Lad det velsignede Guds Ord
Snart lyde rundt den hele Jord,
At Jøde,Tyrk og Hedning maa
Det rette Syn paa Sandhed faa!

4 Luk Døren op til Hjertets Hus,
At i det Mørke, paa det Grus
Maa falde Straaler af den Sol,
Som lyser fra din Naadestol!

5 Udrust de Bud, du sende vil,
Med Visdoms Aand og Troes Ild,
Og lad din Naade skinne ned
Paa dem og deres Taare-Sæd!

6 Og takket være du, som god
Ei uden Vidnesbyrd dig lod,
Men har gjort vel og Ordets Magt
Alt vidt og bredt for Dagen lagt!

7 Saa skride vi til Gjerning vor,
Guds hellig' Aasyn med os gaar.
Bevare Gud vor Indgang hid
Og Udgang indtil evig Tid!
