1 Et Barn er sødt 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 >
