We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

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. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

230. Ak Fader, lad dit Ord, din Aand

1 Ak Fader, lad dit Ord, din Aand
Dog ret saa Overhaand!
Og se, hvor fuld din Urtegaard
Af Torn og Tidsel staar!
Din Vekst du har vel her,
Men, ak, hvor tynd den er!
Hvor lidet er dog Kraften kjendt
Af Ord og Sacrament!

2 O Jesus, Jesus, kom dog snart
At se din Vingaards Art!
Af Døbte vrimler Stad og Land
Men hvor er Troens Brand?
Hvad hjælper det, vi veed,
Du Døden for os led,
Naar vi ei staa mod Satans Værk
I Troen frisk og stærk?

3 O Helligaand, for dig, vor Skat
Vi græde Dag og Nat,
Kom, giv os samme Lys og Kraft,
Vor' Formænd før har havt.
Da Kristendommen stod
Som Træ med stærkest Rod
Og Krone fuld af Frugters Sne
Og Purpur! Lad det ske!
