  • CPDL #13373:        (Sibelius 4)
Editor: David Fraser (submitted 2007-01-07).   Score information: A4, 1 page, 65 kB   Copyright: CPDL
Edition notes: The original publication is in short score with underlay fitted only to the soprano part, thus serving equally well solo/unison voices with piano or organ accompaniment: hence some minor editorial decisions have been required to underlay the three lower parts in this SATB edition.

Drag, Jesus, mig
dog efter dig,
saa følger jeg med Længsel,
did, hvor du, O Jesus, gik
ud fra Verdens Trængsel!

Drag, Jesus, mig
dog efter dig,
fra Verdens Myretue,
at jeg ikke mere skal
al den Jammer skue.

Drag, Jesus, mig
dog efter dig,
med Zions Brudeskare,
thi vi kunde ellers let
vild i Verden fare.

Drag, Jesus, mig
dog efter dig,
til Himlens Frydebolig,
Verden er for dine smaa
vildsom og urolig!

Drag, Jesus, mig
dog efter dig,
til Himlen op at fare,
der at staa med Glædesraab
i de frommes Skare!
