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 >
