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

509. Der staar en Mand og takker Gud

1 Der staar en Mand og takker Gud,
At han er ei som andre,
At han i alle Lovens Bud
Kan ret og rigtig vandre,
Han drister paa sin egen Dyd;
Den Daarskab, Herre Jesu, bryd!
At vi for dig i Bønne-Stund
De skyldig' Pund
Maa mindes ret af Hjertens Grund!

2 Men Tolderen, som knapt sin Fod
Tør i Guds Temple sette,
Han for sig selv langt borte stod,
Gik med sig selv i Rette,
Og brast med Sorg i sukke ud:
O, vær mig Synder naadig, Gud!
Hans Bod var sand, hans Længsel stor,
Han Naaden tror,
Og Gud til Hjerte gik hans Ord.

3 Thi Kristus siger, denne Mand,
Som syntes saa uværdig,
Hso Gud i Himlen Naade fandt,
Og han gik hjem retfærdig.
O Gud, lær os at bede saa,
At vi og kan din Naade faa,
Og saa gaa hjem med Synd forladt,
Og Dag og Nat
Velsigne dig, vort Hjertes Skat!
