Som fåglar små

Representative Text

1 Som fåglar små,
När dundra må,
Och djuren sig förskräcka;
De skynda fort,
Hvar på sin ort,
Att sig för faran täcka.

2 Sä jag ock får
I dina sår
Min till flykt, Jesu fromme!
När synd och död
Tillfoga nöd,
Hos dig jag ro bekomme.

3 Fast kropp och själ
Åt skils, likväl
Mitt hjärtas tröst du blifver.
Du mig ock visst,
O Herre krist
En evig glädje gifver.

4 Gud Fader, son,
I himmelstron,
Och Helge And' tillsamman!
Upptag min bön
Och mig bekrön
Med nåd sällhet Amen.
