Original text and translations

Danish.png Danish text

Min Jesus, lad mit Hjerte faa
en saadan Smag paa dig,
at Dag og Nat du være maa
min Sjæl umistelig.

Da bliver Naadens Tid og Stund
mig sød og lystelig,
thi du mig kysser med din Mund
og tager hjem til dig.

Mit Hjerte i den Grav, du laa
til Paaskemorgen rød,
lad, naar det aftner, Hvile faa
og smile ad sin Død!

Før saa mig arme Synder hjem
med din Retfærdighed
til dit det ny Jerusalem,
til al din Herlighed!

Bjørn Christian Lund (1738-1809)
