Representative Text

1 Al den ganske Kristenhed,
Priser Guds Barmhjertighed!
Han, vor skaber, faderlig
Over os miskunded sig,
Hørte bange Hjerters Bøn,
Han ved sin enbaarne Søn
Frelser os i Lys og Løn.

2 Jesus Kristus, Frelseren,
Deler med os Salvelsen,
Guds Enbaarne, Kvindens Sæd,
For os fødtes, for os led;
Blev forsfæstet, lagt i Jord,
Og til Helved nedfor,
Men stod op med Livets Ord.

3 Himmelfaren Gud og Mand,
Hos vor Fader sidder han,
Kommer dog igjen herned
Med sin Faders Herlighed,
Dømmer Levende og Død',
De Udkaarne i hans Skjød
smage da skal Hvilen fød.

4 Indtil da den Helligaand
Fører os i Troens Baand
Med det salige Guds Ord
Til vor Frelsers Bad og Bord,
Skjænker os, med Synd forladt,
Fred og Frelse Dag og Nat,
Livets Krone, Himlens Skat.

In 1810 he became assistant to his father in a parish in Jutland. The sermon he preached at his ordination, on the subject "Why has the Lord's word disappeared from His house," attracted much attention, which is rarely the case with "pro… Go to person page >
