Kom Helligaand med skaber magt

Representative Text

1 Kom Helligaand med Skaber-Magt
Opret hvad Synd har ødelagt,
Og fyld hver Sjæl med Glæde sød,
Som er af dig til Livet fødd!

2 En Trøsters store Navn du bær,
Guds Gave dyr og hjertenskjær,
Den syge Sjæl en Salve mild,
En Livsens Brønd, en hellig Ild.

3 Du Visdoms, Raads og Styrkes Aand,
Du Kraften af Guds høire Haand,
Du Lysets Bærer, Guds Ords Tolk
For alle Tungemaal og Folk;

4 Dit Lys optænd i vor Forstand,
I Hjertet Kjærlighedens Brand,
Til Vanmagt vor og Usseldom
Med hellig Hjertestyrke kom!

5 Vor Fiende, jag ham langt paa Flugt,
Giv Fred og fager Troes Frugt.
Og lad os alle, Store, Smaa,
Udi din Sjæle-Omsorg staa!

6 Gjør os med Gud vor Fader kjendt,
Med Sønnen, som han har udsendt,
Med dig, som fra den begge gaar,
Og hjælp, at vi i Troen staar!

7 Vær lovet, Gud vor Fader god,
Guds Søn som op af Døde stod,
Og Trøsteren, som kom herned,
Vær lovet i al Evighed!

Author: Pope Gregory I

Gregory I., St., Pope. Surnamed The Great. Was born at Rome about A.D. 540. His family was distinguished not only for its rank and social consideration, but for its piety and good works. His father, Gordianus, said to have been the grandson of Pope Felix II. or III., was a man of senatorial rank and great wealth; whilst his mother, Silvia, and her sisters-in-law, Tarsilla and Aemiliana, attained the distinction of canonization. Gregory made the best use of his advantages in circumstances and surroundings, so far as his education went. "A saint among saints," he was considered second to none in Rome in grammar, rhetoric, and logic. In early life, before his father's death, he became a member of the Senate; and soon after he was thirty and ac… Go to person page >

Translator (Norwegian): M. B. Landstad

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.

After that he worked in different parishes in Telemark, Østfold befo… Go to person page >
