We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. 

So, please, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? 

In April 2020, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1.5 million sessions from approximately 1 million users. Both numbers were up 40% from April 2019. Amazing. And what a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns.

And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source. 

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do. 

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below.

Representative Text

1 Gud har fra Evighed givet sin Søn os til Herre,
Stort er hans Navn, og høilovet det evig skal være;
Himmel og Jord
Lover ham, lyder hans Ord,
Herren er han til Guds Ære!

2 Frygter ei, Kristne! med Kraft han vil værge sit Rige,
Helvedes Porte forgjæves imod det skal krige;
Hvad han har bygt,
Staar paa en Klippe saa trygt,
Fienden med Skamme maa vige.

3 Ud over Jorden og indtil dens yderste Ender
Hilsen og Budskab om Fred og om Naade han sender;
Vide skal hver,
Jesus Guds Salved er,
Saligt det Hjerte, ham kjender.

4 Kommer til Hobe fra Verdens de fjerneste Lande,
Herrens Gjenløste, hans Magt og Hans Miskund at sande!
Siger dit ud,
Jesus, vor Herre og Gud,
Drog os af Dødsdybets Vande!

5 Kommer, I Arme, som til ham med Taarer har bedet,
I Sønderknuste i Aanden, som han har helbredet,
Sørgendes Hær,
Siger og synger enhver:
Jesus vort Hjerte har glædet!

6 Høit over Himlenes Himle han throner, den Herre;
Jorderig raabe med Glæde og give ham Ære!
Synger i Kor!
Lad os med Idræt og Ord
Palmer og Salmer ham bære!

He took a theological degree (cand. theol) in 1827, and worked after that as the resident chaplain in Gausdal for six years.
