Af høiheden oprunden er

Representative Text

1 Af Høiheden oprunden er
En Morgenstjerne klar og skjær
Af Sandhed og af Naade;
Du Jesse Rod og Davids Kvist,
Min Hjertens Brudgom, Jesus Krist,
Mig fryder overmaade!
Liflig, Venlig,
Mild og kjærlig,
Stor og herlig,
Rig paa Gaver,
Lys og Liv i dig jeg haver.

2 Eia, min Skat og Krone skjøn,
Guds og Jomfru Marias Søn,
O du høibaarne Konning!
Du Lilje i mit Hjerte-Skrin,
Dit hellig' Ord og Hilsen din
Er sød kom Melk og Honning.
Guds Blomst
Din Komst,
Hosianna!
Himlens Manna
Vi fornemme,
Aldrig kan jeg dig forglemme.

3 Du klare Ædelstenen min,
Lad skinne i mit Hjerte ind
Din Ild og Elskovs Flamme,
Gud glæde mig og give vist,
Jeg være maa en Livsens Kvist
Alt paa dit Legems Stamme!
Til dig
Saart mig
Længes komme,
Himlens Blomme!
Suk jeg sender,
Rækker til dig Hu og Hænder!

4 Min Sjæl i Gud da fryder sig,
Naar du til mig ser mildelig
Med dig Miskundheds Øie.
O Herre Krist, hvor du er god,
Dit Ord, din Aand, dit Legem, Blod
Mig Salighed tilføie!
Drag mig,
Tag mig,
Giv mig Arme
Naadens Varme!
Jeg er Bruden,
Paa dit Ord jeg kommer buden.

5 Gud Fader min i Himmerig,
Før Verden var, du elskte mig
Udi din Søn den kjære,
Og han har selv jo valgt mig ud,
Og han er Brudgom, jeg er Brud,
O Herre Gud, for Ære!
Eia, Eia!
Himlens Glæder
Jeg tiltræder,
Snart han fører
Bruden hjem, som ham tilhører!

6 Stem op, og syng en Brudesang!
Lad Strengeleg og Harpeklang
Af Hjertens Lyst nu lyde,
Thi med min Jesus skal jeg gaa,
Og ham til Brudgom skal jeg faa,
Det skal mig evig fryde!
Synger, Leger,
Jubilerer,
Triumferer,
Naaber Kjære:
Stor er Herren til Guds Ære!

7 Hvor hjerteglad er jeg da nu!
Mig Et og Alt er Jesus, du,
Mit Ophav og min Ende;
Mig vil du dag jo til din Pris
Optage i dit Paradis,
Thi klapper jeg i Hænde!
Amen, Amen!
Kom min glæde!
Jeg er rede,
Dryg ei længe,
Al min Hu ved dig mon hænge.

Philipp Nicolai (b. Mengeringhausen, Waldeck, Germany, 1556; d. Hamburg, Germany, 1608) lived an eventful life–he fled from the Spanish army, sparred with Roman Catholic and Calvinist opponents, and ministered to plague-stricken congregations. Educated at Wittenberg University, he was ordained a Lutheran pastor in 1583 in the city of Herdecke. However, he was soon at odds with the Roman Catholic town council, and when Spanish troops arrived to reestablish Roman dominance, Nicolai fled. In 1588 he became chief pastor at Altwildungen and court preacher to Countess Argaretha of Waldeck. During that time Nicolai battled with Calvinists, who disagreed with him about the theology of the real presence of Christ in the Lord's Supper. These doctri… Go to person page >

Magnus Brostrup Landstad (born 7 October 1802 in Måsøy, Norway and died 8 October 1880 in Kristiania) was a Norwegian minister, psalmist and poet who published the first collection of authentic Norwegian traditional ballads in 1853. This work was criticized for unscientific methods, but today it is commonly accepted that he contributed significantly to the preservation of the traditional ballads. Landstad lived with his father Hans Landstad (1771–1838) who was also a minister, first in 1806 to Øksnes, to Vinje in 1811 and to Seljord in 1819. He took a theological degree (cand. theol) in 1827, and worked after that as the resident chaplain in Gausdal for six years. After that he worked in different parishes in Telemark, Østfold befo… Go to person page >

Tune

WIE SCHÖN LEUCHTET

Adapting a tune written for Psalm 100 found in Wolff Köphel's Psalter (1538), Nicolai composed WIE SCHÖN LEUCHTET, which was published with the text in 1599. Although the tune was originally more varied rhythmically, the hymnal version here is isorhythmic (all equal rhythms) and set to the rich ha…
