1 Kjære Barn, hvor stor er dog
Naaden, som dig End har givet!
Faderen dig til sig tog,
Og i Sønnen har du Livet,
Aanden fik du til et Pant.
Alt Guds Naades Ord er sandt.

2 Renset saa i Daabens Aa,
Ofret Gud i Barndoms Alder,
Kan du herlig smykket staa,
Naar dig Gud til Bryllups kalder;
Kjødets Sans skal vorde slukt,
Kristus ind i Hjertet lukt.

3 Tænk da nu paa denne Pagt,
Alt imens du Aande drager,
Bliv hos Herren, vær paa vagt,
At din Krone ingen tager!
Den, af Gud er kaaret saa,
Skal og Herrens Veie gaa.

4 Tidlig nu dig selv paamind,
Hvad i Daaben du afsiger,
Lad ei Djæv'len trænge ind
Med sin List og falske Smiger,
Vær i Jesus Kristus stærk
Mod al Synd og Satans Verk!

5 Boks i Herrens Frygt, bliv stor,
Og bliv til Forældres Glæde,
Daabens Naade, Herrens Ord
Følge dig, hvor du skal træde,
Være dig evindelig
Rettesnor til Himmerig!

Schmolck, Benjamin, son of Martin Schmolck, or Schmolcke, Lutheran pastor at Brauchitschdorf (now Chrόstnik) near Liegnitz in Silesia (now Poland) was born at Brauchitschdorf, Dec. 21, 1672. He entered the Gymnasium at Lauban in 1688, and spent five years there. After his return home he preached for his father a sermon which so struck the patron of the living that he made Benjamin an allowance for three years to enable him to study theology. He matriculated, at Michaelmas, 1693, at the University of Leipzig, where he came under the influence of J. Olearius, J. B. Carpzov, and others, and throughout his life retained the character of their teaching, viz. a warm and living practical Christianity, but Churchly in tone and not Pietistic.

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 >
