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.

Dit ord, o Gud, sum duggen kvæger

Representative Text

1 Dit Ord, o Gud, som Duggen kvæger
Den svage Sjæl med Kraft og Fred,
O lad i hvert et Hjertebæger
Din Himmels Balsam dryppe ned;
Lad Jesu Ager grønnes smukt,
Lad Ordet bringe Troens Frugt!

2 Dit Ord,o Gud, er Sværd og Flamme,
Det trænger gjennem Marv og Ven,
Det veed at knuse, veed at ramme,
Er Hjertet end saa haardt som Sten;
Lad alle føle ret dets Magt,
At Synden er det underlagt!

3 Dit Ord, o Gud, er Østens Stjerne,
Der fører os til Kristus ind,
De Vise følge den saa gjerne
Og glædes ved dens klare Skin;
Lad alle se den lyse frem
Og finde Naadens Betlehem!
