1 Paa Bjerget har nu Jesus endt
Sin Prædiken og Tale,
Nu har han Fod og Hjerte vendt
Ned til de dybe Dale,
Til hver, som i Bodfærdighed

Og bekjende

Og ham sin Frelser kjende.

2 Du kan, o Jesus, om du vil,
Jeg veed, du al Ting mægter,
O ræk din Haand, ræk mig den til,
Før ganske jeg vansmægter!
Tal til min Sjæl og giv mig Bod,
Sig, at jeg ren skal være,
Og hjembære
En Sjæl, som i dit Blod
Er renset dig til Ære!
