Full Text

1 Kristus Jesus, du velsigne
Landet og dets Øvrighed,
Lad os dig og deri ligne,
At vi vise Lydighed!

2 Frygte Gud og Kongen ære,
Øvrigheden vær tro,
Det os dybt indprentet være,
Hvor vi komme eller bo!

3 Lad os søge Landets Bedste,
Og i Forbøn være tro,
Elske inderlig vor Næste,
Fremme Gudsfrygt, Fred og Ro!

4 Lær os, gjerne at adlyde
I en god Samvittighed
Dem, du satte til at byde
Over os som Øvrighed!

5 Drag, o Herre, vi dig bede,
Deres Hjerter til den Pagt,
Du dem i det Kald veilede,
Som af dig dem er paalagt!

6 Ved din Naade lad dem kjende
Kraften af dit Korses Ord,
Lad dit klare Lys og brænde
Her og over Fædres Jord!

7 Lad det alles Hjerter fryde,
Frelser, at du bliver kjendt!
O velsign os, lad os nyde
Naade, Lykke ufravendt!

Author: Anonymous

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 >
