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.

Min Jesus, du min Sjæletrøst

Min Jesus, du min Sjæletrøst

Representative Text

1 Min Jesus, du min Sjæletrøst,
Mit Liv, min Sol min Glæde!
Vil du dog i min Sorg og Brøst
Bort fra mit Aasyn træde?
Vil du mig ensom lade gaa
I Verdens Sorg og Møie,
At dit Øie
Jeg ikke skue maa,
Hvor kan jeg dette døie?

2 Skal for min Modgangs Vintervei
Mai-Maaned aldrig dages?
Skal og ved Himlens Straaler ei
Min Grædesky bortjages?
Skal ingen Honningdraabe mig
Udi mit Bæger falde
For den Galde,
Som skjænkes idelig
For alle Guds Udvalgte?

3 O kjære Sjæl, dit Korsets Pund
Saa tungt du ei bør tegne,
Du har et Ord af Jesu Mund,
Derefter kan du regne:
"En liden Stund" det vare skal,
Saa haver din Elende
En god Ende,
Og skal i Himlens Sal
Til evig Fryd sig vende.

4 Lad da kun Verden glæde sig,
Og sine Børn opamme
I deres korte Himmerig,
Lad dem af Ære bramme,
Af Høihed, Magt og hvad som mer
Dem Lykken her kan skjænke.
Jeg vil tænke:
Naar Jesus til mig ser,
Kan Resten mig ei krænke.

5 Lad Verdens Børn i Hjertet le,
Naar mine Klager lyde,
Og for min Sjæles Sorg og Ve
De falte Taarer flyde,
Lad Verden trykke mig idag
Med al sin Magt og Evne
Gud skal hvene,
Thi han vil selv min Sag
For sig i Rette stevne.

6 Kom Kors og Kummer, kom da, hvad
Den onde Verden giver,
Vi gladelig skal skilles ad;
Thi Jesus han indliver
Udi min Sjæl saa kraftig Trøst,
At med hver Øie-Draabe
Jeg kan raabe:
Gud høre skal min Røst,
Det kan jeg tro og haabe!

Thomas Hansen Kingo (15 December 1634 – 14 October 1703 Odense) was a Danish bishop, poet and hymn-writer born at Slangerup, near Copenhagen. His work marked the high point of Danish baroque poetry. 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. At first he essayed patriotic poems, but later devoted h… Go to person page >
