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,

Aldrig er jeg uden Vaade

Representative Text

1 Aldrig er jeg uden Vaade,
Aldrig dog foruden Naade.
Altid har jeg Suk og Ve,
Altid kan jeg Jesus se.

2 Altid trykker mine Synder,
Altid Jesus Hjælp tilskynder,
Altid er jeg udi Tvang,
Altid er jeg fuld af Sang.

3 Nu i Sorg og nu i Glæde,
Nu i Fald og nu i Sæde,
Ofte fuld af stor Uro,
Altid fuld af Jesu Tro.

4 Saa er Sorg og Glæde lænket,
Sødt og Surt for mig iskjænket
I mit Levnets Omgangs-Skaal,
Saadan er it Levnets Maal.

5 Men, O Jesus, jeg vil græde,
Hjælp du til, at Troens Glæde
Fremfor Synd og Sorger maa
Altid Overvegten faa.

Thomas Hansen Kingo (15 December 1634 – 14 October 1703 Odense) was a Danish bishop, poet and hymn-writer born at Slangerup, near Copenhagen. His work marked the high point of Danish baroque poetry.
