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

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.
