Forsøm ei Herrens Menighed

Representative Text

1 Forsøm ei Herrens Menighed,
Der skal du Veien lære
Og Gud, somer og bliver ved,
Med dine Brødre ære;
Din Andagt tænde deres an,
Og deres din antænde,
At fælles Lov mod Himlen kan
Som fra eet Hjerte brænde.

2 Er du en Herre, lok da frem
Guds Lov af Dines Munde
Og daglid hellighold med dem
De søde Bedestunde!
Søg dine Husfolks Salighed,
Lad denne Pligt ei rygges!
Hver Tjener, end den mindste med,
Som Christen bør ophygges.

3 Og dine Brødre, bed for dem!
Vi er; eet Legems Lemmer;
Din Uven han er og et lam,
Hvis Bedste Gud ei glemmer;
Bed tidt, og strid med Troens Skjold!
Sky Ondt, og prøv dig nøie!
Bliv ei i kjærlig Iver kold!
Søg Visdom fra det Høie!

Author: Christian Fürchtegott Gellert

Gellert, Christian Fürchtegott, son of Christian Gellert, pastor at Hainichen in the Saxon Harz, near Freiberg, was born at Hainichen, July 4, 1715. In 1734 he entered the University of Leipzig as a student of theology, and after completing his course acted for some time as assistant to his father. But then, as now, sermons preached from manuscript were not tolerated in the Lutheran Church, and as his memory was treacherous, he found himself compelled to try some other profession. In 1739 he became domestic tutor to the sons of Herr von Lüttichau, near Dresden, and in 1741 returned to Leipzig to superintend the studies of a nephew at the University. He also resumed his own studies. He graduated M.A. 1744; became in 1745 private tutor or l… Go to person page >
