I arme Synd're, kommer hid

Full Text

1 I arme Synd're kommer hid,
Ak, kommer snart i Naadens Tid,
I ere i stor Vaade!
Se, Jesu Hjerte aabner sig
For alle dem, som inderlig
Paakalde ham om Naade.

2 Se, Syndere modtager han,
Kom! Jesus frelse vil og kan,
Du skal ei gaa til Grunde;
Kom med din Hjerte-Graad og Bod,
I Troen hannem fald til Fod,
Han vil sig vist miskunde!

3 Sit Faar forlader Hyrden ei,
Naar det gaar paa den vrange Vei,
Med Hjertens Flid han leder;
De andre Faar han lader staa,
Ja fra sig ud i Ørken gaa,
At han det ene redder.

4 Saa søger Krist, vor Herre kjær,
Det Faar som tabt og borte er,
Indtil at han det finder;
Lad finde dig, du arme Faar,
Fly til hans Favn, som aaben staar,
Før Naade-Dagen svinder!

5 Gid jeg maa være al min Tid
Dit Faar og du min Hyrde blid
I Liv og Dødsens Fare!
Vend mig fra Syndens Skum og Skarn,
Og lad mig, som et sandt Guds Barn
Paa dit Bud tage vare!

6 Fra denne Stund jeg siger af
Al Syndens Løst indtil min Grav,
Nu vil jeg din forblive,
I Hellgihed med største Flid
At tjene dig i Naadens Tid,
Den du mig vilde give!

Laurenti, Laurentius, son of Herr Lorenz, or Laurenti, a burgess of Husum, in Schleswig, was born at Husum, June 8, 1660. He entered the University of Rostock in 1681, and after a year and a half spent there, went to Kiel to study music. In 1684 he was appointed cantor and director of the music at the cathedral church at Bremen. He died at Bremen, May 29, 1722 (Koch, iv. 281; Rotermund's continuation of Jöcher's Gelehrten-Lexicon, iii. 1405, &c). Laurenti was one of the best hymn-writers of the Pietistic school. His hymns are founded on the Gospels for Sundays and Festivals, and they draw out the bearing on the Christian life of the leading thoughts therein contained. They are of noble simplicity; are Scriptural, fervent, and often of genu… Go to person page >
