Bøi dig for din Konge, Sjæl!
Verdens Konger! bøier eder!
Stolte Magt og Høihed! knæl!
Thronen for Guds Søn bereder!
See, i Aandens store Land
Konge-Spiret fører han;
Mørkets Magter for ham vige,
Hans er Salighedens Rige!

Over de Gienløstes Land
Han paa Naadens Stol er Dommer!
Evig lovet være han!
I Gud-Faders Navn han kommer!
Sjung, hver Sjæl, med Tak og Bøn:
Hosianna, Davids Søn!
Sjung, mens alle Knæ sig bøje,
Hosianna i det Høie!
