O min Frälsare, mig led

Representative Text

1 O min Frälsare, mig led
Öfver lifvets bölja vred.
Okänd farled för mig är,
Bränningar och dolda skär.
Dyre Jesus, led mig fram,
För min farkost in i hamn.

2 Likt ett barn vid moders bröst
Stillas hafvet vid din röst.
Stormig bölja lägger sig,
När hon hør ditt "Ssilla, tig."
Gud allsvåldig är ditt namn;
För min farkost in i hamn.

3 När jag slutar färden svår –
Dödens bränning mot mig slår –
Ingif då mitthjärta trøst,
Låt mig høra få din röst,
Där jag hvilar i din famn:
"Jag skall föra dig i hamn."
