Træder nu til Herrens Bord

Representative Text

1 Træder nu til Herrens Bord
Op, I Nadvergjæster,
Tror vor Herre paa hands Ord,
Som hans Blod stadfæster;
Stille nu,
Kom ihu,
Hvad af Gud er givet
Eder her til Livet!

2 Kom med sand Bodfærdighed
Over eders Synder,
Ydmyge Gud giver Fred,
Angers Graad han ynder.
Slaa dig tyst
For dit Bryst,
Bøi dig for din Dommer,
Førend Hevnen kommer!

3 Ganger frem med Fromheds Skrud
Og i Troens Klæde,
Slige Gjæster tækkes Gud,
Deri har han Glæde,
Tager Mad,
Drikker glad
Hans Blods-Bæger bedste,
Alle herrens Gjæste!

4 Naar I værdeligen saa
Æde nu og drikke,
Eders Sjæle leve maa,
Og fortabes ikke.
Takker Gud,
Holder ud,
Gak saa hen, I Kjære
Fred med eder være!

5 Jesus, Herre, Frelser god,
Mød her dine Fromme,
Lad dit Legeme og Blod
Hjertet vel bekomme!
O forlad,
Gjør os glad,
Sign os allesammen,
Og bønhør os, Amen.

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact.
