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 største hjertens glæde

Representative Text

1 Min største Hjertens Glæde
Er mig ny Sommer blid,
Som Gud skal selv berede
For mig til evig Tid;
Ny Jord og Himmel holde
Vi vente retnu snart,
Da skulle vi faa holde
Vor søde Himmelfart.

2 O Herre Krist jeg stunder
Alt efter Komme din!
Hjælp mig, jeg ikke blunder
I Synd, og sovner ind,
Men gladelig maa vente
I de Aarvaagnes Flok,
Der have Lamper tændte
Og Lys og Olje nok!

3 Da glædes den, som sukked,
O Herre, efter dig,
Da faa vi se oplukket
Det hele Himmerig,
Da vil du høit os hædre
Hos dig i Himlens Sal
Med alle fromme Fædre
Og Helgen uden Tal.

4 De ville os annamme
Som sine Søskend smaa,
De ville sig ei skamme
Jevnsides os at staa;
Der faa vi Lov at træde
Dig nær til høire Haand,
Og takke dig med Glæde,
Vor kjære Frelsermand!

5 Der Gud paa Ærens Throne
Sin seierrige Hær
Vil hilse: Til din Krone
Og Krans velkommen vær!
Og Jesus selv vil smykke
Den Brud, han kaared sig,
Da ønsker os til Lykke
Det hele Himmerig.

6 Da skal vi høre: Amen,
Taksigelse og Pris!
Da skal der være Gammen
Paa glade Engles Vis;
Saa lystelig de sjunge
For Lammet og hans Brud,
Da raaber hver en Tunge:
Nu lovet være Gud!

7 Se, saa vil Gud os finde
Og faa fra al vor Nød,
Og gjemme godt derinde
Fra Djævel, Synd og Død,
Fra Sorg og Suk og Klage,
Fra Sygdom, sot og Saar,
Fra alle onde Dage,
Som over Verden gaar.

8 Hvad intet Øre fanget,
Hvad intet Øie saa,
Hvad aldrig er opganget
I noget Hjertes Vraa,
Det haver Gud forvaret
Til dem, ham elske her,
Og bliver aabenbaret
Der, Gud i Lyset er.

9 Thi skal I ei forsage,
Som nu bær Sorgen stor,
Og lider tungsom Plage
Paa denne arme Jord!
Sig trøste alle Fromme,
De Stunder skride fort!
Vor Herre snart vil komme,
Og tage Sorgen bort.

10 O Herre, for din Ære
Før os den rette Sti,
Bevar os, Jesus kjære,
Thi ellers vildes vi!
Hold os i Troen faste
I denne Taaredal,
Du vil vist ogsaa haste
Med os til Himlens Sal!

Johann Walther (b. Kahla, Thuringia, Germany, 1496: d. Torgau, Germany, 1570) was one of the great early influences in Lutheran church music. At first he seemed destined to be primarily a court musician. A singer in the choir of the Elector of Saxony in the Torgau court in 1521, he became the court's music director in 1525.

He served the Elector of Saxony at the Dresden court from 1548 to 1554 and then retired in Torgau. Walther met Martin Luther in 1525 and lived with him for three weeks to help in the preparation of Luther's German Mass. In 1524 Walther published the… Go to person page >
