We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. 

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

In April 2020, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1.5 million sessions from approximately 1 million users. Both numbers were up 40% from April 2019. Amazing. And what a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns.

And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source. 

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do. 

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below.

Hvor ilde dog af Synds Begjær

Representative Text

1 Hvor ilde dog af Synds Begjær
Et Verdens Barn kan blindes!
Den sande Visdom, Brødre, er
At Jesu Venskab vindes,
Og Mammon den kan bruges saa,
Guds Venner glade mødes maa,
Naar de i Himlen findes.

2 Ved og arbeid, og dig ei ængst,
Om du skal betle, grave,
Vid, Ærlighed den varer længst,
Og skal sin Løn nok have;
Men Lykken, som er kjøbt med Synd,
Den er, forsandt at sige, tynd,
Og dybt dens Tænder gnave.

3 Af syndesanket Guld og Gods
Der Helved-Gnister sprager,
Samvittigheden sidder hos
Og Hjerte-Freden tager,
Det arves ei i tredie lLed,
Men ærlight Brød i Ansigts Sved
Som manna lifligt smager.

4 "Gjør Regnskab!" heder det engang.
For den, som mindst det venter,
Det lyder som en Rædselssang:
"Inat din Sjæl jeg henter."
Thi vælg idag det bedste Raad,
Gak til din Gud med Bøn og Graad,
Du haver ingen Renter!

5 O Herre Gud, som os i Haand
Har lagt de Gaver dyre,
Oplys os ved din Helligaand,
At vi dem ret bestyre.
Og gange i Husholdning din
Med Sandheds søde Vennesind
Og ei i Skalheds Syre!

6 O, væk os op, at vi med Flid
Og friske Alvors-Tanker
Maa bruge viselig vor Tid
I Troskab, hvor i vanker,
Og bære Hæders-Navnet ret
Af Lysets børn og Himlens Æt,
Som i din Favn du sanker!

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. After that he worked in different parishes in Telemark, Østfold befo… Go to person page >
