Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Jesus, kom dog selv til mig

Representative Text

1 Jesus, kom dog selv til mig,
Og forbliv uryggelig!
Kom, min Sjæleven saa kjær,
Jeg alene dig begjær.

2 Verdens Lyst og Liflighed
Giver Sjælen ingen Fred,
Vil kun Jesus hos mig bo,
Fattes mig ei Trøst og Ro.

3 Verdens Rigdom, Magt og Pragt
Holder jeg kun i Foragt,
Jesus, din Fornedring er
Al den Ære jeg begjær!

4 Tages al Ting fra mig bort,
Jeg dit ikke skjøtter stort,
Du, o Jesus, er den Del,
Jeg udvælger for min Sjæl.

5 Ingen anden lukkes ind
I mit Hjerte, Hu og Sind.
Ak, saa kom da, Sjæleven,
Driv al Sorgen fra mig hen!

6 Tusind Gange ønskes du,
Som er ene i min Hu
Tusind Gang' jeg beder dig,
Jesus, kom, og bliv hos mig!

7 Nu jeg taalig vente vil,
Lægger dette Suk hertil
Herre Jesus, trøst mig, naar
Jeg af denne Verden gaar.

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
