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.
Harry Plantinga

Et barn er født i Betlehem

Representative Text

1 Et Barn er født i Betlehem,
I Betlehem,
Thi glæder sig Jerusalem,
Halleluja, Halleluja!

2 Han lagdes i et Krybberum,
Et Krybberum
Ei Ende har hans Herredom.
Halleluja, Halleluja!

3 Men Okse der og Asen stod,
Og Asen stod,
Og saa den Gud og Herre god,
Halleluja, Halleluja!

4 Af Saba kom de Konger tre
De Konger tre,
Guld, Røgels', Myrra ofred de.
Halleluja, Halleluja!

5 Han fødtes af en Jomfru skjær,
En Jomfru skjær,
Foruden Mand hans Fødsel er.
Halleluja, Halleluja!

6 Vort Kjød og Blod han paa sig tog,
Han paa sig tog,
Uskab af Djæv'len blev han dog.
Halleluja, Halleluja!

7 I Kjød og Blod er han os lig,
Er han os lig,
I Synden er han os ulig.
Halleluja, Halleluja!

8 Dermed gjør han os lig med sig,
Os lig med sig,
Og fører os til Himmerig.
Halleluja, Halleluja!

9 For samme nu den Naadens Tid
Den Naadens Tid
Vi love Gud, for Herre blid.
Halleluja, Halleluja!

10 Lov, Tak og Pris is Evighed,
I Evighed,
Den hellige Tresoldighed!
Halleluja, Halleluja!

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
