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

246. Mægtigste, Christe, Menighedens Herre

1 Mægtigste Christe, Menighedens Herre,
Den du har tegnet med dit Kors til Ære,
Skynd dig at hjælpe os af Fiendens Snare,
Dit Folk bevare!

2 For du selv Striden for de Børn saa svage,
Dæmp du vor Fiende, driv hans Magt tilbage;
Hvad sig mod dine Lemmer vil ophøie,
Du selv nedbøie!

3 Fred udi Kirken vi af dig begjære,
Fred udi Landet, du os og Beskjære,
Fred udi Hjertet du for Alting give
Hos os at blive!

4 Saa skal din Godhed udi Tiden prises,
Og hisset evig endnu mer udvises;
Himmel og Jord din Godhed skal bekjende,
Til de faa Ende!
