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.

Jeg veed mig en Søvn i Jesu Navn

Representative Text

1 Jeg veed mig en Søvn i Jesu Navn,
Den kvæger de trætte Lemmer,
Der redes en Seng i Jordens Favn,
Saa moderlig hun mig gjemmer,
Min Sjæl er hos Gud i Himmerig,
Og Sorgerne sine glemmer.

2 Jeg veed mig en Aften-Time god,
Og længes vel somme Tider,
Naar jeg er af Reisen træt og mod,
Og Dagen saa tungsom skrider:
Jeg vilde til Sengs saa gjerne gaa,
Og sovne ind sødt omsider.

3 Jeg veed mig en Morgen lys og skjøn,
Der synges i Livsens Lunde,
Da kommer han, Guds velsigned' Søn,
Med lystelig' Ord i Munde,
Da vækker han os af Søvne op
Alt udi saa sæle Stunde.

4 Jeg haver den Morgen mig saa kjær,
Og drager den tidt til Minde,
Da synge jeg maa, og se den nær,
Den Sol, som strør guld paa Tinde,
Som Smaafuglen ud mod Morgenstund
Op under de høie Linde.

5 Da træder Guds Søn til Gravens Hus,
Hans Røst i al Verden høres,
Da brydes alt Stængsel ned i Grus,
De dybe Havsgrunde røres,
Han raaber: Du Døde, kom herud!
Og frem vi forklaret føres.

6 Da aabnes den Dør til Himlens Stad,
Der nævnes de Kaarnes Navne.
Gud lade os alle mødes glad,
Og ingen af Vore savne!
Det unde os gud for Kristi Blod,
Vi maatte i Himlen havne!

7 O Jesus, træd du min Dødsseng til,
Ræk Haanden med Miskund over,
Og sig: Denne Dreng, den Pigelil
Hun er ikke død men sover!
Og slip mig ei før, at op jeg staar,
I Levendes Land dig lover!

Magnus Brostrup Landstad (born 7 October 1802 in Måsøy, Norway and died 8 October 1880 in Kristiania) was a Norwegian minister, psalmist and poet who published the first collection of authentic Norwegian traditional ballads in 1853. This work was criticized for unscientific methods, but today it is commonly accepted that he contributed significantly to the preservation of the traditional ballads. Landstad lived with his father Hans Landstad (1771–1838) who was also a minister, first in 1806 to Øksnes, to Vinje in 1811 and to Seljord in 1819. He took a theological degree (cand. theol) in 1827, and worked after that as the resident chaplain in Gausdal for six years. After that he worked in different parishes in Telemark, Østfold befo… Go to person page >
