Representative Text

1 Stäm upp din segersång

Att nåden den är fri.

2 Besjung var Herre Gud
Och Sonen, som blef död,
Att frälsa arma syndare
Från evig pinas nöd.

3 På tronen nåden satt
Och vreden stilla stod,
När ende Sonen sändes ned,
Att två oss med sitt blod.

4 Aftorka smärtans tår!
Ej hopplös ångest när!
Men nådens spira fatta om,
Den fritt dig bjudes här.
