1 Himlene, Herre! fortælle din Ære,
Mesteren prise det hvælvede Blaa,
Solen og Maanen og Stjernernes Hære
Vise os, hvad dine Hænder formaa;
Men i dit Hus, i din Kirke paa Jorden,
Der tale Date med Dage om dig,
Der sig forklare din Sol og din Torden,
Der paa Oplysning selv Natten er rig.

2 Ei er i Sandhed der Ord eller Tanke,
Som i dit Hus ei fik Mæle og Røst,
Og alt saa vide, som Stjernerne vanke,
Bring paa Jord de oplysning og Trøst,
Ordet med Solen i skiftende Tider
Udgaar som Brudgom i morgenrød Glans,
Straalende frem ad sin Bane det skrider,
Krones som Helten med aftenrød Krans!

3 Saa paa sin Bane din Sol i det Høie,
Lyset i Sandhed, omreiser vor Jord,
Intet i Verden er skjult for dens Øie,
Aldrig udslettes dens straalende Spor;
Ren som et Guld er den Lov, du har givet,
Omvender Sjæle, som agte derpaa,
Trofast dit Vidnesbyrd fører til Livet,
Vismænd det gjør af vonkundige Smaa.

After leaving the university he took to teaching; first in Langeland, then (1808) in Copenhagen. Here he devoted his attention to poetry, literature, and Northern antiquities. In 1810 he became assistant to his father in a parish in Jutland. 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 >
