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 sol, min lyst, min glæde

Representative Text

1 Min Sol, min Lyst, min Glæde,
Min Jesus, Hjertens Ven,
Hvor længes jeg at træde
Og komme til dig hen!
Jeg har en Julesang
I Hjertet dig at yde,
Som skal med Tak udflyde,
Hjælp selv min Troes Gang!

2 Men, ak, de Verdens Bomme
Og Bolte hindre mig,
Jeg ei saa fort kan komme
Til, søde Jesus, dig.
Her lægges Sten og Stød
For Foden alle Steder,
I dig jeg mig dog glæder
Og længes til min Død.

3 Man siger mig, du ligger
I Krybbe, Hø og Straa,
Kun lig en ussel Tigger;
Jeg dig dog gjerne saa!
Nu siger man: hvad kan
Er Arm hos Arme gjøre?
Dog hviskes i met Øre,
Du er af anden Stand.

4 Man siger, at dig følger
Kun Kors og Kummer med,
Og at man gaar i Bølger
I dine Fodefjed;
At Død, og Satan til,
Samt Verdens onde Skare
Vil sætte dem i Fare,
Som dig opsøge vil.

5 Sligt mig vel meget hindrer,
Og isner mig mit Blod,
Dog er der Et, som lindrer
Mig ved min Hjerterod;
Jeg veed ei, hvad det er,
Det er en Lyst, en Længsel
At følge dig, om Trængsel
Mig end til Døde skjær.

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.
