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

Bygger du ditt hus på sanden

Representative Text

1 Bygger du ditt hus på sanden
Här bland storm och vindens sus?
Eller bygger du på klippan,
Som står fat vid böljans brus?

Det uar viktigt, det är viktigt
Se dig själf i ordets ljus!

2 Fäster du ditt hopp på Kristus?
Där är säker byggnadsgrund;
Då går du ock trygg mot faran
I den vilda stormens tund,

Och din sällhet, och din sällhet
Kan ej rubbas af sin grund.

3 Bygg på klippan, bygg på klippan!
Snart kan slagregn komma på!
Stormens makter äro stora,
Hårdt skall hoppet pröfvas då.

Bygg på klippan, bygg på klippan,
Evigt skall du då bestå.
