We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. 

So, please, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? 

In April 2020, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1.5 million sessions from approximately 1 million users. Both numbers were up 40% from April 2019. Amazing. And what a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns.

And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source. 

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

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.

Representative Text

1 Med Sorg hver Dag vi ser,
Her vokser mer og mer
Af Laster og af Lyder,
Udsmykkede som Dyder,
De sagte sig indsniger,
Og høit i Veiret stiger.

2 Hvor er vor Kristendom,
Naar vi os tænker om?
Vi har kun Stilk og Blade,
Dog frit af Troen sprade,
Tør og med Blomster prale,
Om Frugt er ikke Tale.

3 Hvor er nu Ret og Skjel,
Som fordum vokste vel?
Hvor Kjærlighed og Dyder,
Som Kristendommen pryder?
Hvor er og nu Guds Ære,
O hvor mon den dog være?

4 O Gud, vor Fader, du
Arbeider indtil nu,
Og Jesus med stor Naade
Arbeider lige Maade,
Men vi Guds Miskund ilde
Og store Møie spilde.

5 Det er kan høie Tid,
O gjører eder Flid,
Og kommer, Kristne, stræver
Med Frygt, saa Hjertet bæver,
Ved Aandens Hjælp at føres
Til Gud, at helliggjøres!

6 Og viser overalt
Hans Dyder, som har kaldt
Os ud af Mørkets Fare
Til Lyset sit det klare,
Paa det vi ham til Ære
Skal Lysets Børn sa være!

7 O give Gud, det sker
Med mig og mange fler,
Ja rundt i Verden vide
I disse Naadens Tide,
Nyt Liv i os maa tændes
Og klarlig hos os kjendes.

He belonged to a rather poor family partly of Scottish origin and was educated a clergyman. In his youth, Kingo wrote a series of poems picturing humorous scenes in village life and a pastoral love poem, Chrysillis. He studied theology at the University of Copenhagen, graduating in 1654, and for some time acted as private tutor. In 1661 he was appointed vicar to the pastor at Kirke Helsinge, and in 1668 he was ordained a minister at his native town, where his poetic activity began.
