Tag, det namnet Jesus med dig

Representative Text

1 Tag det namnet Jesus med dig,
Du, som vandrar sorgens fjät.
Tröst och glädje skall det ge dig:
Hvar du gå, tag med dig det.

Dyra namn! Sälla hamn!
Jordens hopp och himlens fröjd.
Dyra namn! sälla hamn!
Jordens hopp och himlens fröjd.

2 Dig till hjälp mot hvarje fara
Tag det namnet ständigt med!
Hotar frestelsernas skara,
Gå i Jesu hamn och bed! [Kör]

3 O, hvad fröjd det namnet bringar
Åt en fattig mänskosjäl!
O, hur ljuft det nament klingar!
Däri har jag allt mitt väl. [Kör]
