Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

But, before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going.

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more.

1 Hvi kvider Kjød og Blod sig saa
For Dødens sidste Time?
Hvi falder det os tungt at gaa,
Vi arme Pillegrime,
Naar Herren vil, at vi skal til
Vort Hjem i Himlen haste,
Og i vor Grav vor Vandrings-Stav
Og Byrde fra os kaste?

2 Ak Herre, lær mig ret at dø,
Ag, naar min Tid er omme,
Mit Kald fra denne Verdens Ø
I en god Stund maa komme!
At mig til Gavn i Jesu Navn
Jeg frydefuld i Aanden
Maa møde dig frimodelig
Med lampen tændt i Haanden!

3 Nu vel! jeg mig med Glæde da
Indsvøber i mit Lagen,
Indtil jeg hører Lyden fra
GudsRøst paa Dommedagen.
En vel bered Samvittighed
Gud give mig at bære!
Lad saa min Krop kun raadne op,
Den raadner dog til Ære!

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
