Her mødes alle Veie

Representative Text

1 Her mødes alle Veie
Paa Gravens bratte Rand,
Her er vort sidste Leie
I Skyggers mørke Land,
Her synke alle Hænder,
Her visner hver en Krans,
Her samles Muldens Frænder,
Her falmer Støvets Glans.

2 Men han, til hvem vi spæde
Alt bares i vor Daab,
Forbød vor Samfundskjæde
At sørge uden Haab.
Hvor til Gud Faders Ære
Vor Frelsen høit opfor,
Der skal hans Tjener være
Med ham, den Herre stor.

3 Saa smile da hvert Øie
Selv gjennem Taaresky,
Som skimter i det Høie
Det store Morgengry!
Saa folde fromt sig Hænder
I Jesu Kristi Navn,
Thi Troens Vei sig ender
I Herlighedens Havn!

The sermon he preached at his ordination, on the subject "Why has the Lord's word disappeared from His house," attracted much attention, which is rarely the case with "pro… Go to person page >
