Vel den, der ved i Jesu navn

Full Text

1 Vel den, der veed i Jesu Navn
At løbe ret vor Gud i Favn!
Han faar i Sandhed, hvad han vil,
Som jesus selv har sagt ham til.

2 Naar Barnet til sin Fader gaar,
Hvor gjerne det en Gave faar!
Og skriger det i Hungers Nød,
Saa faar det jo et Stykke Brød.

3 Er Gud din Fader, tro ham til,
At han dig hjælpe kan og vil,
Men den, som gaar paa Syndens Vei,
Den hører Gud, vor Fader, ei.

4 Kun den, som Naaden fandt attraar,
Og Jesus i sit Hjerte faar,
Han kan alene bede smukt
I Jesus navn med salig Frugt.

5 Saa bed ei med den bare und,
Men ret af ganske Hjertens Grund
Med Tro, og tvil saa ikke paa
Den ting, du beder om, at faa!

6 Men, søde jesus, selv mig lær,
Din Fader ret at komme n'r,
At jeg kan altid faa ved dig,
Min Jesus, hvad der baader mig!
