2 Verden er stolt af største Kløgt,
Siger, den alt har ransaget,
Himmelens Kræfter undersøgt,
Slet ingen Fare opdaget;
Men det er Verdens gamle Skik,
Tryggest den sov, da den forgik
Fordum i Syndflodens Vande.

Som der er nu at beskne!
Sandhedens Ord det skal bestaa,
Trods elementernes Lue,
Møde vi Herren skal i Sky,
Himmel og Jord da gjøres ny,
Sandhed og Kjærlighed seire!
