Nu Gud ske lov, at stunden

Representative Text

1 Nu Gud ske Lov, at Stunden
Er sød og blid oprunden
Jeg gaar til Paradis!
Forældre, I ei klage,
Men til min Grave ledsage
Mig hen med Herrens Lov og Pris!

2 Hvor kan Gud bedre gjøre,
End mig fra Verden føre,
Som er saa syndefuld?
Hver, som ei her har hjemme,
Dens Fiendskab maa fornemme,
Indtil han lægges ned i Muld.

3 Før var jeg eders Glæde,
Nu sørge I og græde,
Da jeg er vei forvart;
Naar I det ret betragte,
Gud Gjerning tjenligst agte,
Skal eders Taarer tørres snart.

4 Gud ene Tiden deler,
Han baade slaar og heler,
Han kjender Smaat og Stort,
Han intet Ondt bestemte,
Han intet Godt forglemte,
Alt, hvad han gjør, er herlig gjort.

5 Naar I skal se mig træde
For Gud i Brudeklæde
Med Livets Krone paa,
Med Seierens Pryd og Palmer,
Med Himlens Glæde-Salmer
For Lammet yndefuld at staa;

6 Da skal I Eder fryde,
Og begge To fortryde,
At I for mig har grædt.
Vel den, som i Guds Vilje
Sig overgiver stille,
Hans Hjerte vist vil blive let.

7 Farvel! jeg Afsked tager.
Den Sorg, som I nu smager,
Maa Kjærligheden ske;
Gud eder selv ledsage,
Saa skal vi uden Klage
Hverandre snart for Thronen se!

Johann Heermann's (b. Raudten, Silesia, Austria, 1585; d. Lissa, Posen [now Poland], 1647) own suffering and family tragedy led him to meditate on Christ's undeserved suffering. The only surviving child of a poor furrier and his wife, Heermann fulfilled his mother's vow at his birth that, if he lived, he would become a pastor. Initially a teacher, Heermann became a minister in the Lutheran Church in Koben in 1611 but had to stop preaching in 1634 due to a severe throat infection. He retired in 1638. Much of his ministry took place during the Thirty Years' War. At times he had to flee for his life and on several occasions lost all his possessions. Although Heermann wrote many of his hymns and poems during these devastating times, his persona… Go to person page >
