We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. 

So, please, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? 

In April 2020, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1.5 million sessions from approximately 1 million users. Both numbers were up 40% from April 2019. Amazing. And what a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns.

And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source. 

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

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. 

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,
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!
