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.
Harry Plantinga

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
Guds Røst 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 >
