1 Nu lader os fremtræde
Med Takkesang og Glæde
For Herren, som os Livet
Og meget Godt har givet.

2 Et Aar vi saa hensvinde,
Det kalder os til Minde
De mange gode Gaver,
Som Gud os givet haver.

3 Som Mødre til de Spæde
Henile, naar de græde,
Og dem i Nød og Fare
Med største Flid bevare;

4 Saaledes Gud beskjærmer
Sit Folk, naar Angst sig nærmer;
Tidt, før vi Faren kjender,
Hans Hænder den bortvender.

5 Du, som vort Liv bevarer,
Fra Aar til Aar os sparer,
Ak, lukte du dig Øie,
Forgjæves var vor Møie!

6 Du har din store Naade
Mod os saa overmaade
Hver Morgen villet vise,
Derfor vi dig nu prise.

7 Mens her endnu vi trænges,
Lad efter dig os længes,
For Alting du os give
Med Taal hos dig at blive!

8 Du paa din Vei os føre,
Velsigne, hvad vi gjøre,
Som Naadens Sol du glæde
De Gamle med de Spæde!

9 Men fremfor Alt, o Herre!
Din Aand lad hos os være,
Han her for dig os pryde,
Til vi os hjemme fryde!

10 Giv os til Nytaarsgave,
Hvad vi nu bedet have!
O du, vort Liv i Live,
Vi i din Haand os give!

On January 2, 1628, he matriculated at the University of Wittenberg. In the registers of St. Mary's church, Wittenberg, his name appears as a godfather, on July 13, 1641, described still as "studiosus," and he seems to have remained in Wittenberg till at least the end of April, 1642. He appears to have gone to Berlin in 1642 or 1643, and was there for some time (certainly after 1648) a tutor in the house of the advocate Andreas Barthold, whose daughter (Anna Maria, b. May 19, 1622, d. March 5, 1668) became his wife in 1655. During this period he seems to have frequently preached in Berlin. He was appoint… Go to person page >
