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.

Hold oppe Gud hos os dit ord

Representative Text

1 Hold oppe, Gud, hos os dit Ord
Lad det faa Overmagt paa Jord
Mod dem, som Krist, din Søn, vor Sol,
Vil støde fra hans Kongestol!

2 Lad sees, Herre Krist dit Værk,
At du er fremfor alle stærk,
Forsvar din arme Kristenhed
Dit Navn til Pris i Evighed!

3 Gud Helligaand, du Trøster sand,
Giv enig Tro i alle Land!
Staa med os i vor sidste Nød,
Giv os i Gud en salig Død!
