Hvad est du dog skjøn

Language: Danish (Dansk)

Hvad est du dog skjøn, ja skøn,
Ja skøn, du aller lifligste Guds Søn!
O du min Sulamit, Sulamit. Ja mit,
Ja mit, alt, hvad jeg har er også dit.

Min Ven, du est min, ja min,
Ja min; så lad mig altid være din!
Ja, evig vist, evig vist, ja vist, 
Ja vist! Du min skal blive her og hist

Men tænk, jeg er her, ja her,
Ja her iblandt så mange dragne Sværd!
O så kom, Due! kom Due! kom, ja kom!
Ja kom! I Klippens Rif er Ro og Rum.
