O, du trefoldig Enighed

Representative Text

1 O du trefoldig' Enighed
Og en sand Gud af Evighed!
Om Solen bort med Dagen gaar,
Dit Guddoms Lys dog hos os staar.

2 Vi love dig om Morgenstund,
Om Aftenen bede om din Miskund;
Vor arme Lovsang prise dig,
Thi du est god evindelig.

3 Gud Fader evig Ære ske,
Guds Søn, som frelste os fra Ve,
Og Aanden, som os trøste kan,
Ske Lov og Pris i alle Land!

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 >

Author: St. Ambrose

Ambrosius (St. Ambrose), second son and third child of Ambrosius, Prefect of the Gauls, was born at Lyons, Aries, or Treves--probably the last--in 340 A.D.
