Følger med til Urtegaarden

Full Text

1 Følger med til Urtegaarden,
I, som fristedes og faldt,
Se hvor drabelig for Hjorden
Hyrden stred, da ret det gjaldt!
Se hans Kval og hør hans Bøn,
Lær at bede af Guds Søn!

2 Følger med og ser paa Thinget
Verdens Dommer skjændt og Skjældt,
Trindt af Avindsmænd omringet,
Døds-Dom over Snadhed fældt!
Væn dig, Sjæl til Verdens ¬øn,
Lær at lide af Guds Søn.

3 Følger med til Retterstedet,
Ser hans Kors og ser hans Blik!
Ser hans tørre Læber vædet
Ynkelig med Galderdrik!
Ser ham rolig, mild og skjøn!
Lær at dø af Davids Søn!

4 Følger med til Klippegraven
I den aarle Mørgenstund!
Mørkt der er i Dødning-Haven,
Lysner dog om Engle-Mund:
Krist stod up, som blegnet laa,
Lær ost, Herre, at opstaa!

Montgomery, James, son of John Montgomery, a Moravian minister, was born at Irvine, Ayrshire, Nov. 4, 1771.

He left Fulneck in 1787, and entered a retail shop at Mirfield, near Wakefield. Soon tiring of that he entered upon a similar situation at Wath, near Rotherham, only to find it quite as unsuitable to his taste as the former. A journey to London, with the hope of finding a publisher for his youthful poems ended in failure; and in 1792 he was glad to leave Wath for Shefield to join Mr. Gales, an auctioneer, bookseller, and printer of the Sheffield Register newspap… Go to person page >

Nicolai Frederik Severin Grundtvig was the son of a pastor, and was born at Udby, in Seeland, in 1783. He studied in the University of Copenhagen from 1800-1805; and, like some other eminent men, did not greatly distinguish himself; his mind was too active and his imagination too versatile to bear the restraint of the academic course. After leaving the university he took to teaching; first in Langeland, then (1808) in Copenhagen. Here he devoted his attention to poetry, literature, and Northern antiquities. In 1810 he became assistant to his father in a parish in Jutland. The sermon he preached at his ordination, on the subject "Why has the Lord's word disappeared from His house," attracted much attention, which is rarely the case with "pro… Go to person page >
