Benned Nyugszunk

Representative Text

1 Benned nyugszunk, oltalmunk, égi pajzsunk!
Te vélünk vagy, ha ellen tör felénk;
Erőd miénk, karodban baj nem érhet,
Benned nyugszunk, nevedben indulunk!
Erőd miénk, karodban baj nem érhet,
Benned nyugszunk, nevedben indulunk!

2 Nagy nevedben, ó, üdvösség Szerzője!
Nevedben, mely minden fölött való.
Jézus, a Te igazságodra állunk,
Dicső király, a szeretet Ura!
Jézus, a Te igazságodra állunk,
Dicső király, a szeretet Ura!

3 Hitben megyünk, érezve gyöngeségünk,
Kegyelmed, bár, jobban megismernénk!
De szívünkben már zeng a győztes ének:
Benned nyugszunk, nevedben indulunk!
De szívünkben már zeng a győztes ének:
Benned nyugszunk, nevedben indulunk!

4 Benned nyugszunk, oltalmunk, égi pajzsunk!
Tiéd a harc, Tiéd a győzelem.
Ha győztesként a gyöngykapun belépünk,
Örökre Nálad megpihenhetünk.
Ha győztesként a gyöngykapun belépünk,
Örökre Nálad megpihenhetünk.
