1 Vi komme, Herre Jesus Krist,
Fordi du os har buden,
Thi ingen Synder, det er vist,
Kan være dig voruden;
Om denne dyre Nadvers Skat,
Din Kjærlighed til Minde sat,
Vi stikke os til Sæde.

2 O Jesus, gjør os selv bered,
Lad vorde os til Baade!
Jfør os din Retfærdighed
Ved din Aands Kraft og Naade!
Giv, vi som værdig' Gjæster maa
forenes, saa med dig vi faa
Del i din Død til Livet!

3 Bliv ud i os, at vi i dig
Maa indtil Enden blive,
Lad Synd og Død og Satans Svig
Os ikke fra dig rive1
lad os ved dette Maaltids Mad
I Aanden blive mæt og glad,
Og eie alt Guds Rige!
