1 Se, hvor Jesus allevegne
Er tilstede hos enhver,
Som vil ham i Hjertet tegne,
Og sig holde til ham nær!
Midt iblandt Disciplene Lader
han sig herlig se,
Der de fuld af Sorg i Sale
Holdt om Ham en SødSamtale.

2 Før mig, Jesus, det til Minde,
At du allevegne er!
Det skal Synden lænkebinde,
Naar jeg tænker, du er nær.
Kom, o Jesus, tag dit Sted
I min Sjæl og Hjerte med!
Du skal midt udi min Glæde,
Midt i Sorgen have Sæde!

3 Lad din Fred min Frelse blive,
Hvor jeg er paa Verdens Ø,
Gid min Aand jeg op maa give
I din Fred, naar jeg skal dø!
Vis mig dine Sting og Saar,
At min Tro ny Styrke faar
Ved din Død og al den Kvide,
Som du for mig vilde lide!

4 Aabne selv, o Gud, mit Hjerte,
Skjærp, o Jesus, min Forstand,
Paa det jeg din Død og Smerte,
Ja din Seiervinding kan
I min Sjæl og Hjerte saa
Fatte, gjemme og forstaa,
At du i dit Navn vil give
Mig, at jeg maa salig blive!
