Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Representative Text

1 Løft Hoved op, al Kristendom,
Vaag flittig nu, og tænk dig om,
Og hør Guds Ord og Lære!
Skik deg derefter af al Magt,
Staa op af Søvne og giv Agt,
Om du vil salig være!

2 I Himlen er dit Hjertes Skat,
Derfra med Ære kommer brat
Den Ven, du ei kan glemme.
O vær ham tro! saa er du glad
Og venter snart og stunder ad,
At være hos ham hjemme.

3 Du gruer ei for Domme-Dag,
Du veed, han selv har ført din Sag,
Og den med Ære vundet;
Thi længes du hvert Morgengry,
Til Herren kommen selv i Sty,
Naar Natten er udrundet.

4 Naar under hver en Himmel-Egn
Du skuer da din Konges Tegn,
Ja Tegn i Sol og Maane,
Da lyser salig Øiet dit;
Da reiser du dit Hoved frit,
Mens stjerner dø og daane.

5 Men, skjønt du længes, Kristenhed,
Saa glem dog ei, at godt du veed,
Hvad Herren bier efter,
Og bed ham ei, før Timen kom,
Til Jordens Gru og Verdens Dom
At røre Himlens Kræfter!

6 Du veed, du har en Herre mild,
Som nødig kun med Himlens
Ild Hjemsøger Jordens Lyder,
Som "Vennen" hist fra Sodom bad,
Saa bed du for den store Stad,
Til selv han Staven bryder!

7 Ja bed for Babel, til du ser,
At Bøn og Suk ei gavner mer
Mod Undergangens Bølger.
Da raaber han: Jeg kommer snart!
Og Bruden svarer: Kom! med Fart
Jeg dig i Skyen følger.

Nicolai Frederik Severin Grundtvig was the son of a pastor, and was born at Udby, in Seeland, in 1783. He studied in the University of Copenhagen from 1800-1805; and, like some other eminent men, did not greatly distinguish himself; his mind was too active and his imagination too versatile to bear the restraint of the academic course. After leaving the university he took to teaching; first in Langeland, then (1808) in Copenhagen. Here he devoted his attention to poetry, literature, and Northern antiquities. In 1810 he became assistant to his father in a parish in Jutland. The sermon he preached at his ordination, on the subject "Why has the Lord's word disappeared from His house," attracted much attention, which is rarely the case with "pro… Go to person page >
