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

231. Op, Zions Vægt're, sover ei!

1 Op Zion's Vægt're, sover ei!
Kundgjører Folket Herrens Vei!
For Josef Skade, Saar og Sag,
I bære Omhu Nat og Dag;
Lad intet hindre eder fra,
At grunde hjertelig derpaa!

2 Det Regnskab, det som engang skal
Aflægges for saa stort et Tal
Af dyre Sjæle, maa jo vel
Bekymre eders egen Sjæl;
Har Jesus kjøbt dem med sit Blod,
Da lignes intet derimod.

3 Ak, vaager, beder, strider, staar
Mod Løven, som saa listig gaar,
Og søger, hvem han finde kan.
Der slipper Guds trofaste Haand;
Faar han først Hyrden i sin Magt,
Er mange Lam og ødelagt.

4 Ak, Jesu, giv os Hyrder, som
Ret sørge for din Helligdom,
Beskjærm du dem mod Verdens Vold,
Og Satans List saa mangefold,
Lad dem med dig i Samfund staa,
Og evig Hvile hos dig faa!
