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 Kristne, I, som kaldes vil

I Kristne, I, som kaldes vil

Representative Text

1 I Kristne, I, som kaldes vil
Guds Børn, o ser alvorlig til,
At I Gud Faders Vilje gjør
Og lever, som det eder bør,
Ja, hvor I er, og hvor I bor,
Da gaa i Jesu Fodespor!

2 O tænker paa hans Kjærlighed,
Og hvad for eders Skyld han led!
Han elsked eder til sin Grav,
Og villig sig i Døden gav
Sin Fader til saa sød en Lugt,
Og eder til en salig Frugt.

3 Aflægger Horeri og Skam,
al Gjerrighed og Verdens Bram,
Lad slem, letfærdig Snak ei gaa
Af eders Mund, men agter paa,
At Aand og Mund opfyldes kan
Med Hjertens Tak og god Forstand.

4 Vil nogen eder virke paa
Med sledske Ord, at I skal gaa
Paa Syndens brede, baned Vei,
Da værer hans Staldbrødre ei,
Thi derfor gaar Guds Bredes Ild
Udover dem, som fare vild.

5 I gik i Mørket længe før,
Men nu er Lysets store Dør
For eder udi Gud lukt op,
Forlader derfor Mørkets Trop,
Og udi Lyset vandrer saa,
Som Lysets Børn det sømme maa!

6 Lad altid Aandens Frugter se,
Som sig udi al Godhed te,
Ja udi al Retfærdighed
Og Sandhed sig at tyde veed,
Saa skal I Ærens Krone faa,
Og ind i Lysets Bolig gaa!

He belonged to a rather poor family partly of Scottish origin and was educated a clergyman. In his youth, Kingo wrote a series of poems picturing humorous scenes in village life and a pastoral love poem, Chrysillis. He studied theology at the University of Copenhagen, graduating in 1654, and for some time acted as private tutor. In 1661 he was appointed vicar to the pastor at Kirke Helsinge, and in 1668 he was ordained a minister at his native town, where his poetic activity began. At first he essayed patriotic poems, but later devoted h… Go to person page >
