Op, glædes alle, glædes nu

Representative Text

1 Op, glædes alle, glædes nu,
Med Fryd opfylder Sind og Hu
I Herren, eders Glæde!

2 Bort Sorg, og krænk ei mer vort Sind,
Guds Glæde lukke vi nu ind,
At vi kan Jesus favne
Med Bøn og Hjertens Tak og Tro;
I hannem skal vort Haab og Ro
Sin Glæde aldrig favne.

3 Din Fred, o Gud, som overgaar
Alt det, som Sind og Sans formaar,
Vort Sind og Hjerte vare
I Kristus Jesus, at vi maa
Saa stor en Juleglæde faa,
Som aldrig kan bortfare!
