1 Vi takke Gud, vor Fader,
Som er os Arme huld,
Og Synderne forlader
For Jesu Kristi Skyld,
Husvaler den, som sørger,
Og om guds Rige spørger
I Aanden angerfuld!

2 Vi takke Guds Søn kjære,
Vor Herre Jesus sød,
Guds Lam, som vilde bære
Vor Synd og lide Død,
Som med fit Blod os løste;
Krist, load dit Ord os trøste
I vore Synders Nød!

3 Vi takke guds Aand milde,
Som os har draget hid,
Som duaf Naadens Kilde
Os skjænker Trøsten blid!
Gud hjælpe os at være
Og vandre dig til Ære,
Og leve evig Tid!
