Representative Text

1 Milde Jesus, her vi staa
Og vor Tak og Pris dig bære,
At du naadig til os saa,
Vilde kjærlig hos os være,
Vilde dig en Vingaard hegne
Her i Vestens fjerne Egne!

2 Ak, dit søde Livsens Ord
Lyder ikke allevegne;
Endnu mangensteds paa Jord
Er der mørke, golde Egne,
Hvor dit Navn man ikke kjender,
Hvor dit Kirke-Lys ei brænder.

3 Medens vi dig takke her,
Vil vi for dit Ansigt tænke
Paa de mange Hjerter, der
Under Dødens tunge Lænke,
Bede, du vil bud dem sende,
At de maa den Frelse kjende.

4 Herre, alt vort haab er du!
Kom, velsign vort Kirkemøde!
Lad vor Gjerning lykkes os
Krafte væk til Liv det Døde
Kom, velsign os Allesammen!
Milde Jesu hør os! Amen.

Wexels, Wilhelm Andreas. (Copenhagen, Denmark, March 29, 1797--May 14, 1866, Oslo, Norway). Lutheran. After studies in Copenhagen and Christiana (Oslo), became catechist and curate of Our Savior's Lutheran Church in Christiana. Preached against the inroads of rationalism, emphasizing the need for spiritual revival. Church historians claim that his ministry was the turning point in the Church of Norway. Failed in his attempt to give Norway a hymnal, but many of his hymns survived. --J. Irving Erickson, DNAH Archives Go to person page >
