1 Det lidet Barn, som nu er fødd,
Den hjertenskjære Jesus sød,
Han bringer Glæde, sender Aar,
Hvori Guds Naades Sol opgaar.

2 Thi glæde sig guds Engle smaa,
Som op og ned omkring os gaa,
De synge for os fjern og nær,
At Gud med os forsonet er.

3 Er Gud vor Fader, og hans Favn
Opladt for os i Jesu Navn,
Hvad er der da, som skade kan?
Vi har vor Gud og Frelsermand!

4 Han giver os et Jubelaar,
Hvo er, som end i Sorgen gaar?
Frist op! nu er det lovsangs Tid,
Det Barn har gjort vor Stund saa blid.

He took a theological degree (cand. theol) in 1827, and worked after that as the resident chaplain in Gausdal for six years.
