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

571. Zions Vægter hæver Røsten

1 Zions Vægter hæver Røsten:
Vaagn op! der blinker Lyn i Østen,
Vaagn op, Guds Stad, Jerusalem!
Midnats Mulm dig ruger over,
Men Herrens Time slaar,– hvo sover?
I klage Jomfruer, herfrem!
Se, Herren kommer ned,
Stat op, tag Lampen med!
Lad den brænde!
Paa Jesu Bud
Stat op, gak ud!
Han fører dig hjem til din Gud.

2 Zion Vægter-Raabet hører,
En himmelsk Glæde Hjertet rører,
Hun vaagner og staar freidig op.
Herren kommer stor og prægtig,
Af Naade sterk, af Sandhed mægtig;
Nu rinder hendes Stjerne op!
Ak, kom, du Krone skjøn,
Min Jesu, du Guds Søn!
Hosianna!
Vi følge med!
Du har bered
En Bolig os i Evighed!

3 Ære være dig, du Høie!
Ak Gud, hvad ser, hvad ser mit Øie!
Rundt om din Throne Engle-Rad!
Lyset er saa klart derinde,
Og hver din Ven vi der gjenfinde
Saa engleren og engleglad!
Hvad intet Øie saa,
Hvad aldrig Tanker naa,
Der vi skue!
Nu, Jord farvel!
Stig høit, min Sjæl,
Følg Jesum ind til Glædens Væld!
