O Hjertens Ve

Full Text

1 O Hjertens Ve,
Og Sorg at se,
Som maa et Hjerte skjære,
At de Guds enbaarne Søn
Død til Grave bære!

2 O store Nød!
Guds Søn er død,
Paa Korset ihjelslagen!
Lægges nu i Graven ned
I sit Jordelagen!

3 O Menneske,
Din Adfærd se!
Du voldte ham den Vaande;
Thi for dine Synders Skyld
Opgav Krist sin Aande.

4 Se det Guds Lam,
Med Spot go Skam
Her ligger blodbestænket!
Din Forløser har sit Liv
For din Frelse skjænket!

5 O søde Mund,
Vor Troes Grund,
Hvi er du blodig slagen?
Alt, hvad lever her paa Jord,
Maa istemme Klagen!

6 O venlig' Blik,
Og Aasyns Skik,
Du Sol af himmerige!
Hver den Sjæl, som slig dig ser,
Maa af Nædsel skrige.

7 O salig hver,
Som skjønner her,
Hvad Offer stort er skjænket,
Herlighedens Herre selv
Er i Graven sænket!

8 O Jesus Sød,
Min Trøst i Nød,
Jeg beder dig med Taare:
Hjælp, at jeg indtil min Død
Længes ad dig saare!

9 O Jesus sød,
Min Trøst i Nød,
Jeg beder dig med Smerte:
Hjælp, at jeg indtil min Død
Giver dig mit Hjerte!

Rist, Johann, son of Kaspar Rist, pastor at Ottensen, near Hamburg, was born at Ottensen, March 8, 1607, and from his birth was dedicated to the ministry. After passing through the Johanneum at Hamburg and the Gymnasium Illustre at Bremen, he matriculated, in his 21st year, at the University of Rinteln, and there, under Josua Stegmann (q. v.), he received an impulse to hymn-writing.

Magnus Brostrup Landstad (born 7 October 1802 in Måsøy, Norway and died 8 October 1880 in Kristiania) was a Norwegian minister, psalmist and poet who published the first collection of authentic Norwegian traditional ballads in 1853. This work was criticized for unscientific methods, but today it is commonly accepted that he contributed significantly to the preservation of the traditional ballads. Landstad lived with his father Hans Landstad (1771–1838) who was also a minister, first in 1806 to Øksnes, to Vinje in 1811 and to Seljord in 1819. He took a theological degree (cand. theol) in 1827, and worked after that as the resident chaplain in Gausdal for six years. After that he worked in different parishes in Telemark, Østfold befo… Go to person page >
