Väl den som gudar har

Language: Swedish (Svenska)

Väl den som gudar har
Väl den som gudar har:
han har ett hem.
Tröst och en tryggad grund
skänks blott av dem.

Vig dig till kämpe
vid en altarrund.
Frälst är din själ
i bönens stund.

Vilan dig väntar
blott i strid.
Först mellan sköldarna
givs det frid.

Tvång till blanka vapen,
fara och tro --
så blir ett hem dig rett,
där du kan bo.
