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

61. Luk Øine op, o Christenhed

1 Luk Øine op, o Christenhed!
Thi Jesus vil dig lære,
Hvordan du from og vel bered
Kan mod hans Tilkomst være,
At Lys og Lampe brænde maa,
Du med din Brudgom ind kan gaa
Til evig Fryd og Ære.

2 Af Skriften har vi Trøst og Haab
Taalmodelig at lide,
Omstjønt blandt Trængsel, Suk og Raab
Vi Tiden end skal slide:
Den Tid er dog saa ganske kort,
Som Fuglen flyver hastig bort,
Saa skal vor Sorg henskride.

3 Taalmodigheds og Trøstens Gud
Han give, at vi kunde
Met eet Sind holde stadig ud,
Og længes alle Stunde,
At vi vor Jesus kunde se
I Skyen, da vor Verdens Ve
Skal evig gaa tilgrunde.

4 Gid vi og kan endrægtelig,
De Gamle med de Unge,
Den store Gud i Himmerig
Med Hjerte, Mund og Tunge,
Fordi han Hedninger indbød,
At nyde Frugt af Jesu Død,
Lov, Pris og Ære sjunge.
