Med Bøn jeg Støv og Muld

Representative Text

1 Med Bøn jeg Støv og Muld
For Gud fremtræder,
Jeg beder ei om Guld
Og Verdens Glæder,
Men jeg har større Ting min Gud at sige,
Ei mindre end som saa:
Jeg beder om at faa
Alt Himmerige!

2 Jeg kommer her til dig,
Min kjære Fader,
Thi Jesus sender mig,
Og hilse lader,
At du for hans Skyld mig vil naadig høre,
Jeg kommer i hans Navn,
Det vil udi din Favn
Som Barn mig føre.

3 Jeg kysser paa din Haand,
Om Naade beder,
At du ved Sandheds Aand,
Ret Vei mig leder,
Mit Hjertes Mulm og Mørke mer opkalrer,
Og sender Lyset ind,
Som alle mine Trin
Fra Fald bevarer!

4 Mit Hjerte vides ud
Af Tak og Bønner,
Du selv, o kjære Gud,
Dem ser og skjønner;
Jeg lægger mig ind til dit Hjerte milde,
Der er jeg glad og stil,
Gjør med mig, hvad dit vil,
Al Naadens Kilde!

5 Naar du et Reisebud
Til mig vil sende,
Naar Lyset slukkes ud,
Mit Liv har Ende,
Da lad din Aand den søde Trøst mig give,
At jeg i Himmerig,
Som Jesus kjøbte mig,
Skal evig blive!

6 Da kan med Ro og Fred
Jeg gaa til Hvile,
I Dødens kolde Sved
Forklæret smile,
Da kan med Fryd jeg mine Hænder folde,
Og gaa med vunden Sag
En evig Sabbatsdag
At helligholde!

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 >

Author (v. 1, 3, 5, 6): 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 >
