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!

Author: St. Ambrose

Ambrose (b. Treves, Germany, 340; d. Milan, Italy, 397), one of the great Latin church fathers, is remembered best for his preaching, his struggle against the Arian heresy, and his introduction of metrical and antiphonal singing into the Western church.
