Hvo Øren har, han høre til

Hvo Øren har, han høre til

Representative Text

1 Hvo Øren har, han høre til,
Hvor Jesus paa os klager,
Og Sæden af hans Haand ei spild,
Men den til Hjerte tager!

Hvor Livsens sæd ei saaet er,
Der bli'r en øde Ager.

Paa det Guds Ord kan trænge ind,
Og gode Frugter bære,
Som følge med i Hobetal
Til Himmerig, naar høstes skal,
Dit Navn til Pris og Ære!

Magnus Brostrup Landstad (born 7 October 1802 in Måsøy, Norway and died 8 October 1880 in Kristiania) was a Norwegian minister, psalmist and poet who published the first collection of authentic Norwegian traditional ballads in 1853. This work was criticized for unscientific methods, but today it is commonly accepted that he contributed significantly to the preservation of the traditional ballads. Landstad lived with his father Hans Landstad (1771–1838) who was also a minister, first in 1806 to Øksnes, to Vinje in 1811 and to Seljord in 1819. He took a theological degree (cand. theol) in 1827, and worked after that as the resident chaplain in Gausdal for six years.
