1 I Kristne, I som træde
Hver Dag med Hjertens Glæde
til Jesus Kjærlighed,
Ifører dog de Dyder,
Som sande kristne pryder,
Og Gud kan tækkes ved.

2 I drage dog til Minde,
At ingen er at finde,
I Verden uden Brøst,
Dog vilde Gud os kalde
Som Hellige, Udvalgte
Til al sin Glædes høst.

3 Barmhjertighed I øve
Og gjøre Venskabs Prøve
I Ydmyghed og Tro,
Med stille Taal I søge
Al Kjærlighed at øge
Til Sjælens Fred og Ro.

4 Kan En med rette klage,
Saa skal han dog fordrage
Og se til Jesus hen;
For eders Skyld han døde,
Forlod al eders Brøde,
Saa gjører I igjen!

5 Med Kjærligheden klæder
Ord, Gjerninger og Sæder,
Saa skal Guds gode Aand
Fast eder sammenbinde
Med Kjærlighedens Tvinde,
Fuldkommenhedens Baand.

6 Guds Fred og Fryd regjere
Og daglig sig formere
I eders Hjertested,
At som I kaldte ere,
Eet Legeme at være,
I prise Gud dermed!

7 Guds Ord sin Bolig have
Hos eder og begave
Med Visdom og Forstand,
At I med Aand og Tunge
Ham Takkesalmer sjunge,
Som Himlen røre kan!

8 Alt det, som I vil gjøre
Og agter at udføre
Til eders Sjælegavn,
Det skal I tage fore
Med Hjertens Bøn saa saare
I Jesu Kristi Navn.

Thomas Hansen Kingo (15 December 1634 – 14 October 1703 Odense) was a Danish bishop, poet and hymn-writer born at Slangerup, near Copenhagen. His work marked the high point of Danish baroque poetry. 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.
