Psalme [Jeg har en Angst som aldrig før]

Hans Christian Andersen 1805 (Odense) – 1875 (Copenhagen)

Jeg har en Angst som aldrig før,
Som stod jeg foran Dødens Dør
Og maatte ind og styrte ned
I Mørke og i Eensomhed;
Jeg drives frem med Stormens Hast,
O Herre, Herre, hold mig fast!
 
Alt Ondt i mig det kom fra mig,
Hvad Godt jeg gjorde kom fra Dig;
De Andres Skyld jeg nok opskrev
Men ei mit eget Skyldner-Brev;
Hvor har jeg for mig selv hver Dag
Besmykket godt min egen Sag.
 
Jeg trædes skal af Dødens Hæl,
Først da sig løfte kan min Sjæl.
Læg Fadervor som Duens Blad
Mig paa min Tunge, gjør mig glad.
Har jeg ei Gud, hvad har jeg da,
Naar hele Verden falder fra!
