1 Vor Herre Gud og Skabermand,
Velsigne os i alle land,
Han vende selv sig naadig hid,
Bevare os til evig Tid!

2 Vor Herre Gud og Frelser kjær,
Lad lyse over hver ifær
Sit ansigts klare Lys og Skin,
og give os al Naaden sin!

3 Vor Herre Gud og Trøster sød,
Sit Aasyn Løste paa vor Nød,
Han skue kjærlig til os ned,
Og give os en evig Fred!

4 Velsign os, Gud, vor Fader god,
Velsign os, Jesus, for dit Blod,
Gud Helligaand, ao Verden om
Velsign den hele Kristendom!

5 Gak hen velsignet af din Gud,
Udvalgte Jesu kristi Brud!
Gak hen med Fred og Slædesang,
Gud er med dig paa al din Gang.

6 Velsignet eders Udgang vær,
Velsignet eders Indgang her,
Velsignet udi Lys og Løn
Ved Jesus Krist, Guds kjære Søn!

7 Han fører os, vor Frelsermand,
Hjem til vort rette Fædreland,
Der skal vi glædes bedre da,
Staar op, kom lad os gaa herfra!

Herbert, Petrus, seems to have been a native of or resident at Fulnek in Moravia. He was ordained priest of the Brethren's Unity in 1562, became a member of the Select Council in 1567, and was latterly Consenior of the Unity. By the Unity he was entrusted with many important missions. He was sent as a deputy to confer with Calvin: and again in 1562 to arrange with Duke Christoph of Württemberg for the education at Tübingen of young men from the Bohemian Brethren. He was also one of the deputies sent to Vienna to present the revised form of the Brethren's Confession of Faith to the Emperor Maximilian II. in 1564, and in 1566 to present their new German Hymn Book. He died at Eibenschütz in 1571 (Koch, ii. 414, Allgemeine Deutsche Biographi… Go to person page >
