1 Naar vi i største Nøden staa,
Og vide ei hvor vi skal gaa,
Og finde ingen Hjælp og Raad,
Om vi end græde Hjertens Graad;

2 Saa er vor Trøst i saadan Meen,
At komme sammen hver og en,
Dig at paakalde, Herre Gud,
Om Hjælp efter dit Ord og Bud.

3 Vi vore Øine sørgefuld
til dig opløfte, Herre huld,
Og søge Synds Forladelse
Og alle Straffes Mildelse.

4 Som du forjætter naadelig
Hver den, som derom beder dig
I din Søns Navn, den Herre Krist,
Vor Frelser og vor Talsmand vist.

5 Thi komme vi, o Herre sød,
Og klage dig vor store Nød,
Mens vi nu ganske er forladt
Med Sorg og are omkringsat.

6 Sku ei vor Syd med Øiet dit,
Sig os fra den af Naade kvit,
Staa os i vore Trængsler bi,
Gjør os fra alle Plager fri!

7 Paa det vi kan af Hjertens Grund
Med Glæde takke dig hver Stund,
Adlyde dig med største Flid
Og love dig til evig Tid.

He was appointed Professor of Latin in 1544, then in 1557 Professor of Hebrew and Castle preacher, and in 1558 Town preacher and General Superintendent of the Electorate, receiving in 1559 the degree D.D. from the Unive… Go to person page >

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
