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.

Representative Text

1 Nu nærmer sig vor Pinsefest,
Gud Helligaand, vær du vor Gjest!
Du, som, en evig, mægtig Gud,
Fra Faderen og Søn gaar ud.

2 O helligste Treenighed,
Mit arme Hjerte du bered,
At det dit Tempel være maa,
Der for dig kunde aabent staa!

3 Kom Helligaand og Vidne giv
I mig, at Jesus er mit Liv,
Og at jeg intet andet veed
End hannem mig til Salighed!

4 Kom Sandheds Aand, og lede mig
Paa Sandheds Veie rettelig,
At aldrig jeg fra Troens Grund
Et Haarsbred viger nogen Stund!

5 Om jeg i Tryghed slumrer hen,
O, væk mig snarlig op igjen,
Din kraftig' Naade staa mig bi,
Og lede mig paa Sandheds Sti!

6 Jeg uden dig ei kjende kan
Min Gud og søde Frelsermand,
Lad derfor dine Straaler mig
I Hjertet falde idelig!

7 I Kors og Kummer, Trang og Nød,
I Fare, Fængsel og i Dod
Du mig en Trøster given est,
Min Tarv du kjender ogsaa bedst.

8 Om derfor jeg med Korset paa
Skal gjennem Verdens Torner gaa
Til Himmelen og Livsens Land,
Dog er du med, min Trøstermand!

9 Du viser og, hvor Kronen mig
Opbier udi Himmerig,
Hvor evig Glæde jeg skal faa,
Og stedse for Guds Aasyn staa.

10 O Helligaand, o søde Gud,
Styrk mig, at jeg kan holde ud,
Opvarm mig med din Naades Glød,
Og gjør mig trøstig i min Død!

Thomas Hansen Kingo (15 December 1634 – 14 October 1703 Odense) was a Danish bishop, poet and hymn-writer born at Slangerup, near Copenhagen. His work marked the high point of Danish baroque poetry. He belonged to a rather poor family partly of Scottish origin and was educated a clergyman. In his youth, Kingo wrote a series of poems picturing humorous scenes in village life and a pastoral love poem, Chrysillis. He studied theology at the University of Copenhagen, graduating in 1654, and for some time acted as private tutor. 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.
