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.

Ingen Høihed, ingen Ære

Ingen Høihed, ingen Ære

Representative Text

1 Ingen Høihed, ingen Ære,
Ingen slig Fuldkommenhed
Kan der under Solen være,
At den fri for Fald sig veed;
Ingen sig fordriste maa,
Om han end idag kan staa,
Thi han kan imorgen falde,
Og sig ulyksalig kalde.

2 Store Helgen ogsaa haver
Adams Kjød og Klæder paa,
Deres høie Himmel-Gaver
De i Lerkar bære maa.
Kom og se, hvor Peder faldt!
Der det om hans Troskab gjaldt,
Jesus da hans Løfter savner,
De fløi bort som Røg og Avner.

3 Han ved Ilden, naar han gyser,
Veed sig vel at gjøre varm,
Men Guds Kjærlighed dog fryser
I hans Hjerte, Bryst og Barm.
Naar en Pige spørger ham,
Om han kjender det Guds Lam,
Han tre Gange Jesus nægter,
Og med Meen-Ed for sig fegter.

4 Hanen galer og forkynder
Nattens Gang, men Peder ei
Kjender Gang i sine Synder,
Han er paa den brede Vei;
Han forbander sig og svæ'r,
At ham Jesus fremmed er,
Og midt i hans Synd og Laster
Jesus Øie paa ham kaster.

5 Peder, er du da en Klippe,
Som Guds Kirke bygges paa?
Hvor kan du da saadan glippe,
Og i Storm ei bedre staa?
Nei, vor Jesus Klippen er,
Og hans Ord, som al Ting bær,
Han staar fast og aldrig rygges,
Paa hans Ord Guds Kirke bygges.

6 Ingen Hjertesorg og Møie
Dig, o Jesus, hindre kan
Fra at vende hen dit Øie
Paa den usle, faldne Mand.
Han og merked, at du saa
Alt, hvad i hans Hjerte laa,
Og hvad Skyld der i ham findes,
Saa dit sande Ord han mindes.

7 Han dig nægted trende Gange,
Og afsvor sin Hjerte Gud,
Mine Fald, de er saa mange
Mod hvert Lovens Ord og Bud,
At de overløbe kan
Stjerners Tal og Havets Sand;
Mund og Tunge, Hjerte, Øie
Sig fra dig til Verden bøie.

8 Vel kan jeg i Synden rende
Som en modig Hest i Strid,
Men at jeg mig kan omvende,
Det formaar ei al min Flid.
Vend dig derfor til mig saa
Med din Naade, at jeg maa
Af dit Guddoms Øie skue
Kraften af din Naade-Lue!

9 Peder faldt og blev oprettet
Ved din Naades tore Arm,
O min Jesus, det har lettet
Synde-Stenen af min Barm;
Du vil mig og ei forsmaa!
Ihvor høit min Synd gaar paa,
Vær med Trøstens Aand tilstede,
Lær mig kun som han at græde!

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. At first he essayed patriotic poems, but later devoted h… Go to person page >
