Förlossningen är vunnen Guds Son från evighet

Representative Text

1 Förlossningen är vunnen
Guds Son från evighet
Af Fadern är upprunnen
Till världens salighet.
Hans är den morgonstjärna,
Som lysa kan och värna
I mörker och i kval.

2 Han mämmosla är vorden.
En lofva nådatid
Har uppgått öfver jorden
Med ljus och hopp och fird.
Nu dödens makt är krossad
och syndens boja lossad
Och öppnad himlens port.

3 O Kriste! oss benåda,
Så att i tron vi må
Ljus i din sannings skåda,
Lif af din kärlek få.
Till dig vårt hjärta längtar
Från världens flärd det trängtar
Till din rättfärdighet.

Ambrose was trained in legal studies and distinguished himself in a civic career, becoming a consul in Northern Italy. When the bishop of Milan, an Arian, died in 374, the people demanded that Ambrose, who was not ordained or even baptized, become the bishop. He was promptly baptized and ordained, and he remained bishop of Milan until his death. Ambrose successfully resisted the Arian heresy and the attempts of the Roman emperors to dominate the church.
