Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? 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.

Gud Helligaand, i Tro os lær

Representative Text

1 Gud Helligaand, i Tro os lær
Vor Frelsermand alene
Af Hjertet ret at have kjær,
Og hannem saa at tjene,
At vi mod Dødens Grumhed maa
Udi hans dybe Bunder faa
Den Frelse, han fortjente!

2 Hjælp, at din sunde Lærdoms Kraft
I Hjertet trolig gjemmes,
Af Ordets Brød og søde Saft
Vor Salighed lad fremmes,
Ja gjør os slet fra Synden død,
Og ny igjen til Himlen fød,
I Troen Frugt at bære!

3 Naar Liv og Aande vil forgaa
I Dødens bitre Stunde,
O, at vi da din Virkning saa
I Hjertet føle kunde,
At vi vor Sjæl med god Forstand
Befale maa i Jesu Haand
I evig Ro at gjemmes!

Bartholomew Ringwaldt was born at Frankfort-on-the-Oder, in 1530, and was a Lutheran pastor at Langfield, in Prussia, where he died, 1598. His hymns resemble Luther's in their simplicity and power. Several of them were written to comfort himself and others in the sufferings they endured from famine, pestilence, fire and floods. In 1581, he published "Hymns for the Sundays and Festivals of the whole Year." --Annotations of the Hymnal, Charles Hutchins, M.A. 1872.… Go to person page >
