Sann tro på Gud och på hans ord

Representative Text

1 Sann tro på Gud och på hans ord
Och kraft att göra godt
Och frid i himmel och på jord

2 Till denna lott, till detta kall,
Mig nåd, o Jesu, gif:
Då vet jeg, hvad jag göra skall

3 I dig  är Faderns välbehag,
I dig vår salighet,
O Jesu Krist, igår, i dag
Och i all evighet!
