Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 Fra Himlen kommer Engle-Hær
Til Hyrder, som paa Marken er,
Og om et Barn de sang en Sang:
Det ligger svøbt i Krybben trang!

2 I Betlehem, i Davids Stad,
Hvorom Profeten Mika kvad:
Det er den Herre Jesus Krist,
Den Felsermand, I vente vist.

3 O tænk, hvor godt det dog er ment!
At Gud med eder er forent,
Nu eders Kjød og Blod han bær,
Guds Søn er eders Broder kjær!

4 Hvad mægter Satan, Synd og Død?
Gud selv er med i eders Nød,
Hvad hele Helveds Vold og Magt?
Med eder Gud har Følge lagt.

5 Han vil og kan ei drive Spot,
Sæt Lid til ham, saa gaar det godt;
Lad komme nu, hvad komme vil,
I trodse kan alt Ondt, er til.

6 Tilsidst I gaa med Seier ud,
I ere nu i Slægt meg Gud;
Thi takker ham af Hjertens Grund
Taalmodig, glad hver Tid og Stund.

Magnus Brostrup Landstad (born 7 October 1802 in Måsøy, Norway and died 8 October 1880 in Kristiania) was a Norwegian minister, psalmist and poet who published the first collection of authentic Norwegian traditional ballads in 1853. This work was criticized for unscientific methods, but today it is commonly accepted that he contributed significantly to the preservation of the traditional ballads. Landstad lived with his father Hans Landstad (1771–1838) who was also a minister, first in 1806 to Øksnes, to Vinje in 1811 and to Seljord in 1819. He took a theological degree (cand. theol) in 1827, and worked after that as the resident chaplain in Gausdal for six years.
