Med Straale-Krans om Tinde

Representative Text

1 Med Straale-Krans om Tinde
Forklaret Jesus stod,
Det varmer os herinde
Ved dybest Hjerterod.

2 Thi naar han aabenbares
I Støvets Egn paany,
Skal vi med ham forklares,
Ham møde Høit i Sky.

3 Han stod paa Tabors Høie,
Den Guds og Davids Søn,
Som Solen var hans Øie,
Som Lys hans Klædning skjøn.

4 Med Venner fra Guds Bolig
Vor Frelser skifted Ord
Om Kors og Død fuld rolig,
Om Seng i forten Jord.

5 O hør mig, Herre kjære,
Udbrød da Peder glad,
Her er saa godt at være,
Ei mer vi skilles ad!

6 Vi sidde i det Lave,
Vor Frelser over Sol,
Vi sidde mellem Grave,
Han paa sin Kongestol.

7 Dog godt er her at være,
Det volder Herrens Ord,
Som Aanden til hans Ære
Os trøster med paa Jord.

8 Som Venner i Guds Bolig
Med ham vi skifte Ord
Om Kors og Død fuld rolig,
Om Seng i forten Jord.

9 Vort Kors er uden Jammer,
Vor Død er uden Braad,
Vor Grav et Sovekammer,
Vor Herres Liv vor Lod.

10 Hans Aand er her tilstede,
Hans ord er i vor Mund,
Ham selv vi se med Glæde
Nu om en liden Stund.

11 Til Jesu Kristi Ære
Det tone høit i Sky:
O her er godt at være
I Herrens Kirkely!

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 >
