Ophold os Gud og Fader Stor

Representative Text

1 Ophold os Gud og Fader stor,
I Katekismi rene Ord,
Som du ved Luther lod udgaa
For de Enfoldige og Smaa.

2 Forlen os Naade her paa Jord,
At holde ret de ti Bud Ord;
Forlen os, Herre, Troen skjøn
Til Jesus Krist, den kjære Søn!

3 Vor Fader, du vor Frelses Havn,
Vi bede dig i Jesu Navn,
Hjælp os at tænke paa vor Daab
Og leve, dø i Livsens Haab.

4 Og falde vi, lad os opstaa
Og gjøre Bod og Naade faa
Og nyde saa dit Kjød og Blod
Alt under Brød og Vinen god!

5 Ophold os Herre, Helligaand,
I Levnet rent og Lærdom sand,
Staa du os bi i al vor Nød
Og frels os fra en evig Død!

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact.
