1 Store Gud og Frelsermand,
Som i din Fornedringsstand
Bar din Guddoms Æt i Løn,
Vandred som en Menn'skens Søn,
Oplad ved din Aand, dit Ord
Vore Hjerter, at vi tror
Synet af Guds Søn paa Jord!

2 Døberen, o store Gud,
Som gik før iveien ud
For at vise Verden dig,
Han saa høit undskylder sig,
Siger, han er kun er Røst,
Som mod Syndens Saar og Brøst
Prædiker al Verdens Trøst.

3 Han ei værdig kjender sig,
Dine Sko at løse dig;
Hvad er da jeg, Adams Barn,
Skygge, Støv og Jord og Skarn;
Jeg er ikke værd at staa
Paa den Jord, du traadte paa,
Eller i din Forgaard gaa.

4 Søde Jesus, Davids Rod,
Jeg vil dig med Bøn og Bod
Rede og berede Sted
I min Sjæl og Hjerte med;
Tag det hen og dan det bedst,
Kom derind og vær min Gjæst,
Giv en salig Julefest.
