We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

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. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Kven vil no meg klaga

Representative Text

1 Kven vil no meg klaga
Og til Doms meg draga
Fram til Sinai?
Saart mi Synd eg kjenner,
Men til Jesus renner:
Han meg gjerer fri.
Kom med Krav
Ved Jesu Grav!
Han meg vil ein Fristad laga,
Kven vil der meg klaga?

2 Kven vil no meg saka
Og paa meg tilbaka
Føra Skuld go Skam?
Med Guds Log meg aga,
Mine Synder draga
Atter mot meg fram?
Jesu Saar
Mi Sak gjer klaar.
Han mi skuld paa seg vil taka,
Kven vil so meg saka?

3 Kven vil meg fordøma?
Jesu Rettferds Søma
Løyner Syndi mi.
Klagaren maa tegja,
Domaren vil segja:
Du er frelst og fri!
Jesu Blod
Er Soning god.
So maa synd og Satan røma.
Kven vil meg fordøma?
