We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Representative Text

1 Et Suk igjennem Verden gaar;
Ei Verden selv det Suk forstaar,
Som klager fra dens Hjerte.
Hvor høit den ler og larmer, dog
Der bor i Hjertets dybe Krog
En svag, en lønlig Smerte.

2 Men, Kristen! du det Suk forstaar,
Hvori al Verdens Hjerte slaa,
Thi det har fyldt dit eget.
Ja, du forstaar den sagte Røst,
Da for din Herres søde Trøst
Dit Suk, din Sorg er veget.

3 Din Sjæl har hørt det Ord fra Gud,
Som toner i al Verden ud
Om Livet af hans Naade.
For Livets Kræfter i din Aand
Er brudt, og løst din Tunges Vaand,
Guds Ord har løst din Gaade.

4 I Verdens Ørk, i golde Støv,
gaar Adamsætten stum og døv
Og blind for Livets Strømme.
Fra Himlen lyder Herrens Ord
Om Lyst og Liv paa dunkle Jord;
Men Verden gaar i Drømme.

5 Kun naar Guds "Ephata" i Sind
Slaar ned som Lyn og tr'nger ind,
Det lysner over Dale.
Da Strømmer Livets Flod i Aand,
Og Læben uden Tungebaand
Om Himlens Lyst kan tale.
