Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

170. Tiden svinder

1 Tiden svinder,
Tiden rinder,
Tiden flyver hastig bort,
Tag dig vare
I din Fare,
Da bin Time er saa kort!
O du faar jo ei at vide,
Hvor din Død kan staa vaa Lur,
Tænk paa Evighed i Tide,
Om den ei skal vorde sur!

2 Hold dig færdig,
Reen og værdig
Til den store Bryllupsfest,
Til at være
Der i Ære
Jesu Brud og Himmel-Gjest!
Gud indbød dig, se at træde
Frem for ham med Bøn og Bod,
Tvæt dit synde-smitted Klæde
Hvidt i Lammets røde Blod!
