Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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

Din sol går bort, men du blir när

Representative Text

1 Din sol går bort, men du blir när,
O Gud, du alltid hos oss är;
I mörkret ser du oss ännu,
Och när vi sofva, vakar du.

2 Allt hvilar under Herrens hand,
Som hägnar både stad och land,
Och till de goda barnens ro
Hans goda änglar hos dem bo.

3 Sött sofver den, som fruktar Gud
Och vandrar efter Herrens bud.
Med glädje står han upp igen
Och prisar Gud, sin Far och Vän.

It begins "Jesum haf i ständigt minne," translated by Mrs. Charles in her Christian Life in Song, 1858, p. 250, as "Jesus in Thy memory keep" (Looking unto Jesus). Usually it begins with stanza ii., "Look to Jesus, till, reviving." --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology, Appendix, Part II (1907)  Go to person page >
