Representative Text

1 Gjer Dyrri høg, gjer Porten vid!
Sjaa Krist, din Konung, til deg rid.
Han raader yver alle land
Og er all Heimsens Fresarmann.

2 Rettferdig kjem han til deg ned
Og byd deg Sæla, Liv og Fred.
Stillferdig kjem han, utan Krav,
Og Miskunn er hans Konungsstav.

3 Eit Naadens Aar han ropar ut,
Paa all vaar Nand han gjerer Slut.
Og disyr Røyster utan Tal
Med Lovsong honom møta skal.

4 Ja sæl so er den Staden visst,
Der Konung er vaar Herre Krist,
Og sælt det Hjarta og det sinn,
Der denne Konung stiger inn!
