Bliv hos os, naar Dagen helder,
Du kjære Fader og Gud!
Bliv hos os, naar Mørket vælder
Af Nattens Sluser ud!

Henspred over Dal og Høie
Dit Stjerneklædebons Flig!
Saa lukke vi trygt vort Øie
Og slumre sødt hos Dig.

Bliv hos os, og vi vil drømme
Om Englebørnenes Fred;
Din Aand gjennem Himmelstrømme
Vil suse til os ned.

Og Kongen i Livets Rige
Vil favne alle de Smaa;
Paa Englenes Himmelstige
Skal Barnesjæle gaae.

Bliv hos os, naar Dagen helder,
Du kjære Fader og Gud!
Og Paradiislyset vælder
Af Nattens Sluser ud.
