Gladelig vil vi Halleluja kv'de

Representative Text

1 Gladelig vil vi Halleluja kvæde,
Hjertet skal lege for Herren af Glæde;
Gud giver Synderne til og udsletter,
Tungeste Sorgen af Hjertet os letter!

2 Alt, hvad der lever paa Jorden, skal love
Herren saa liflig som Fuglen i Skove;
Veien og Livet i Kristus er fundet,
Døden og Djævelens Magt overvundet!

3 Alle, som tro, gjør han Miskund og Naade
Trøster og hjælper i værende Vaade,
Trofast i alle de Evigheds Dage
Efter sit Ord, som kan aldrig bedrage.

4 Gud være lovet, os løste af Vaanden!
Gud være lovet med Sønne og Aanden,
Han, som har været og er uden Ende,
Sand Gud, for Syndere salig at kjende!

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.
