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.

I arme Synd're, kommer hid

Representative 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 Lyst 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 >
