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.

Den Naade, Gud os haver ted

Den Naade, Gud os haver ted

Author: Thomas Kingo
Published in 4 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Den Naade, Gud os haver ted
Af faderlig Barmhjertighed,
At kalde os til Himmerig
Og evigt Liv og Lyst hos sig,
Den bør vi høit at skjønne paa,
Og ei paa Onskabs Veie gaa.

2 Men, som det Kristne sømme kan,
Der er i de Gjenfødtes Stand,
Betænke vel vort Syndefald,
Og agte Herrens Naade-Kald,
Ja vandre for hans Aasyn saa,
Vi Himlens Glæde nyde maa.

3 Af Hjerte, Sjæl og ganske Sind
Vi endelig bør lægge Vind
Paa Ydmyghed, og trykke ned
Den Satans Synd Hovmodighed,
Som i Guds Øine hadet er,
Og evig Skjændsel til os bær.

4 Vor Næste bør vi ei forsmaa,
Ei heller det fortryde paa,
Om og hans Lykke, Sted og Stand
Vor meget overstige kan,
Men med et ydmygt Hjerte se,
Vi ham al Hjælp og Miskund te.

5 Enhver af os sin Lyde har,
Er ei saa engleren og klar,
At han jo ofte sig forser
I dette syndig' Legems Ler;
Bedst derfor er, vi fare sagt',
Og paa os selv har nøie Agt.

6 Sagtmodighed og Hjerte-Taal
Bør være vores Øiemaal,
Saa hastig Harm ei tænder Ild,
Naar vor Jevnkristen farer vild,
At skjæmme ham, men give Dag,
Og se i Kjærlighedhans Sag.

7 Af Kjærlighedens rene Væld
Oprinder alle Dyders Held;
Thi Kjærlighed ydmyg er,
Sagtmodig, taalig mod enhver,
Og elsker altid Enighed
Paa Troens Grund i Aandens Fred.

8 Og vi, som Navn af Kristus bær,
Et Legeme med hannem er,
Vi alle ved Guds gode Aand
Bør holde fast ved Fredens Baand,
Vi alle har et Livsens Haab,
Een Herre og en tro, een Daab.

9 Een Gud vor Faders Navn og bær,
Som over alle mægtig er,
Og ved sin Søn har os gjenløst,
Ja Kjærlighed ved Aanden øst
I vore Hjerter rundelig,
At danne os til Himmerig.

10 Saa bør da derfor Kjærlighed
I vore Hjertet blive ved,
Fordi vi alle Søskend er.
O, gid vi sammenknyttes her,
Saa vi kan Ærens Krone faa,
Naar Dommens store Dag skal staa.

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. He belonged to a rather poor family partly of Scottish origin and was educated a clergyman. In his youth, Kingo wrote a series of poems picturing humorous scenes in village life and a pastoral love poem, Chrysillis.

At first he essayed patriotic poems, but later devoted h… Go to person page >
