O hoved høit forhaanet

Full Text

1 O Hoved, høit forhaanet
Med blodig Saar og Ve!
O Hoved tornekronet
til Smerte, Spot og Spe!
O Hoved, som har været
Tilbedet idelig,
Men nu saa høit vanæret,
Vær hilfet hjertelig!

2 Hvo turde saa bespytte
Det Ædle Aasyns Pragt,
For hvilket sig maa slytte
Med Frygt al Verdens Magt?
Hvo har de blege Kinder,
De Øines Deilighed,
Hvis Lige man ei finder,
Saa skammelig tilred?

3 Min Jesus! du er saaret
For mine Synder faa,
Jeg burde have baaret
Den Straf, som paa dig laa.
Se hid! her staar jeg Arme,
Fordømt til Vrednes Ris–
Dig over mig forbarme,
Dit Naade-Glimt mig vis!

4 O, vil du kjendes ved mig1
Min Hyrde, se dit Faar!
O, favn mig, styrk mig, led mig,
Saa ussel som jeg staar!
Din Mund har mig husvalet,
Din Bøn for mig du bad,
Din Aand har til mig talet
Og gjort mig hjerteglad.

5 Jeg vil mig ei begive
Fra dig: tag mig ved Haand!
Hos dig jeg fast vil blive,
Naar du opgi'r din Aand;
Naar du aldeles blegner
I sidste Nød og Død,
Jeg da mig dig tilegner
Og favner i mit Skjød.

6 Jeg takker dig af Hjerte,
Af ganske Sind og Sjæl,
Min Frelser, for din Smerte,
Du mente det saa vel,
Lad mig, o Jesus Kriste,
Ved Troen holde mig,
Naar Øinen vil briste,
Da lad mig dø i dig.

7 Naar jeg herfra skal vige,
Da vig du ei fra mig1
Og naar jeg ned skal stige
I Graven, vis mig dig!
Træd frem, saa snart mit Hjerte
Er klemt i Dødsens Nød,
Forkort min Angst og Smerte
For din den haarde Død.

8 Vær, du mig Skjold og Bue,
Naar jeg min Afsked ta'r,
Lad mig dit Aasyn skue,
Som det paa Korset var!
Jeg derved Seier vinder;
I Troen, som sig bør,
Dig til mit Hjerte binder:
Vel den, saaledes dør!

Gerhardt, Paulus, son of Christian Gerhardt, burgomaster of Gräfenhaynichen, near Wittenberg, was born at Grafenhaynichen, Mar. 12, 1607. 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 >

Alterer: St. Bernard of Clairvaux

Bernard of Clairvaux, saint, abbot, and doctor, fills one of the most conspicuous positions in the history of the middle ages. His father, Tecelin, or Tesselin, a knight of great bravery, was the friend and vassal of the Duke of Burgundy. Bernard was born at his father's castle on the eminence of Les Fontaines, near Dijon, in Burgundy, in 1091. He was educated at Chatillon, where he was distinguished for his studious and meditative habits. The world, it would be thought, would have had overpowering attractions for a youth who, like Bernard, had all the advantages that high birth, great personal beauty, graceful manners, and irresistible influence could give, but, strengthened in the resolve by night visions of his mother (who had died in 1… Go to person page >
