  3. Den himmelske lovsang
  4. En port til Himlen åpen står
  5. Gå meg ei forbi, o Jesus
  6. Gå stille med sorgen
  7. Herre du velsigner alle
  8. Hvilken venn vi har i Jesus
  9. Hvor du enn i verden vanker
  10. I den tause midnattstime
  11. Jeg vil prise min gjenløser
  12. Jeg trenger deg hver stund
  13. Jeg gav mitt liv for deg
  14. Kom til din Frelser, oppsett det ei
  15. Led meg hen til frelsens klippe
  16. O Jesus, på deg ble min syndeskyld lagt
  17. Sett deg for et hellig mål
  18. Sikker i Jesu armer
  19. Søk de forvillede, arme, forførte
  20. Underfullt deilige Eden
  21. Ved korsets fot hos Jesus
  22. Vi går til det land hvor de hellige hviler
  1. Ånd fra Himlen kom med nåde
