Den Trøst er stor,
At salig ere de,
Som høre, tror,
Og gjemme dine Ord,
Lad, o Jesus, dette ske!
Skab Troens Liv, Aandens Lyst
I vort Bryst,
At vi ved Ordets Saft
Maa volke frem i Kraft,
Og alt mere Naade faa,
Til vi Troens Ende naa,
Frelst ved dig i Himlen staa!

Birgitte was born on March 7, 1742, in Gen­tofte, Den­mark. She was the daughter of Jens Jo­han­sen. Boye mar­ried a su­preme court judge in Co­pen­ha­gen, Den­mark. She found time to study German, French and English and translated hymns into Danish from these languages.
