O lad din Aand nu med os være

Representative Text

1 O, lad, din Aand nu med os være,
Vor Jesus Kristus, Herre sød,
Saa Børnene, vi till dig bære,

O, lad dem i dit Navn opstaa,
Og hold dem fast, at ei de falde,
Men fare fort og Maalet naa!

3 Er Løbet langt, lad dem ei mattes,
Graahærdet Tjener kom ihu!
Er løbet kort, lad dem ei fattes,
Et Rum, hvor hjemme selv er du!

4 O, skriv dit Navn i deres Hjerte,
Og deres i din høire Haand,
Saa de med dig har Fryd og Smerte
Tilfælles i den Helligaand!
