Dear Hymnary friend,

We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. Please, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going?

Last month, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1 million sessions from approximately 750,000 users. 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.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 No kjem det Bod fraa Englekor
Med Ord og Ærend slike:
Gud Son, som bur i Æra stor
Og eiger Himmerike,
Vil no vaart Kjøt seg taka paa
og Maandom faa,
Slikt Nytt er utan Like!

2 Maria her ein Bodskap fekk
Fraa Gud, som Englen sende,
So med det Gledebod han gjekk,
Som kling til Heimsens Ende.
Den Møy med Herrens Hugnad sæl
Ved Gabriel
Guds Naade-Helsing kjende.

3 Guds Kraft det yverskyggja skal,
ditt Liv ein Son skal bera
Med guddoms Fylla utan Tal
Og stor i Magt og Æra.
Og Jesus er hans søte Namn,
Som i ein Famn
Skal fødd og fostrad vera.

4 Han er Guds Son so stor og sterk,
Som Satans Magt skal kvæva.
Aa fata dette Underverk
Guds Englar storleg stræva!
Ved honom Jakobs Hus skal staa,
For ahn skal faa
Eit Rike i all Æva.

5 So vilde Gud daa til oss sjaa,
Sitt Folk i Naada gjesta,
So han vaar Gleda auka maa
Og all vaar Von stadfesta,
At han fry oss vil gjera av
Vaart Skuld-Krav,
So inkje meir skal resta.

6 So lat din Ande, Frelsarmann,
Meg kraftig yverskyggja!
Og reid mitt Hjarta med di Hand,
At du kann der faa byggja,
So andeleg eg ogso maa
I Fang det faa,
Meg inkje fraa det styggja!

7 So skal din Himmel i min Barm
Ved Anden innvigd vera.
Mitt Hjarta her i Venting varm
Skal stunda til di Æra,
Til englelik eg eingong maa
Ditt Rike sjaa
Og aldri Synd skal gjera.

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.
