Representative Text

1 Du, som Sorg kann svala
Du, som Trøyst kann tala
Sælt til Hjarta saart,
Raads og Storverks Ande,
Liv i Daudens Lande,
Ljos paa Vegen klaart!
Giv oss Kraft
Og Livsens Saft!
Lat din høge Himmelgivnad
Lysa i vaar Livnad!

2 Lat vaar Tunga gløda,
Hjartat yverfløda
Av Guds Lov paa Jord!
Lær du oss aa beda,
Ber vaar Sorg og Gleda
Framfyr Gud i Ord!
Giv oss Mod
I STriden god!
Naar vaar Fiend vil oss herja,
Styrk oss med di Verja!

3 Livssol, lys med Klaare,
Livsbrunn, still den saare
Hjarte-Torsten min!
Naadesalve, grød meg
Himmelgneiste, glød meg
Upp med Elden din!
Kom og gjer
Ditt Tempel her,
Lat din Altar-Eld meg kjenna
I mitt Hjarta brenna!

4 Dogg, fraa Himmeldala!
Sæle Vaarregn, svala
Turre Kyrkjejord!
Lat no Straumar fløda
Til velsignad Grøda
Av Guds gode Ord!
Giv det Gror,
Gjer Skurden stor,
Hjelp oss sager Frukt aa bera,
Bløma til di Æra!

5 Lat i Logar klaare
Elden fraa din Aare
Lysa i vaart Hus!
Lat vaart Hjarta brenna,
Lat di Røyst oss kjenna
I den stille Sus!
Løys oss ut
Fraa Synd og Sut,
Lat i krist oss frie finnast,
Til Guds Hjarta bindast!

6 Giv i Krossen sæla,
Og i Myrkers Fæla
Ver vaar Sol og Skjold!
Giv vaar Ande Vengjer,
So han upp seg trengjer
Sigrande fraa Mold!
Med oss statt
I Daudens Naat,
Naar han skyt oss Skjelk i Bringa,
Du kann honom tvinga!

7 Medan her me anda,
Lat ved deg oss standa
Trutt i Naadens Stand!
Lat vaart Liv deg æra,
Grøda god deg bera
Som eit signat Land!
Til me naar Guds Rikes Vaar,
Himmelhagens rosor plukka,
Liva der i LUkka.

Author: Benjamin Schmolck

Schmolck, Benjamin, son of Martin Schmolck, or Schmolcke, Lutheran pastor at Brauchitschdorf (now Chrόstnik) near Liegnitz in Silesia (now Poland) was born at Brauchitschdorf, Dec. 21, 1672. He entered the Gymnasium at Lauban in 1688, and spent five years there. After his return home he preached for his father a sermon which so struck the patron of the living that he made Benjamin an allowance for three years to enable him to study theology. He matriculated, at Michaelmas, 1693, at the University of Leipzig, where he came under the influence of J. Olearius, J. B.
