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 O, I Forældre, ser dag paa,
Hvor Josef og Maria gaa
Hen op til Herrens Tempel,
Og føre Barnet Jesus med
Til Herrens Hus og Boligs Sted,
O tager her Eksempel!

2 De kjære Børn, de Planter smaa,
Som I af Gud til Gave faa,
Om I dem Gavn vil gjøre,
Da førger for, hvor I dem kan
Ved godt Exsemple og Forstand
I Jesu Fodspor føre.

3 Det er ei nok, om de end faar
Nødtørstighed i Ungdoms Aar,
Mad, Varetægt og Klæder;
Den unge Gren den bøies vil,
Her hører Tugt og Age til,
Gudsfrygt og gode Seder.

4 Du, som er sat i Høiheds Stand,
Og du, som eier ei et Grand,
Guds Aand er rig hos begge,
Saa Børn kan i en fattig Vraa
Saavel som de, paa Slotte gaa,
Til Gudsfrygt Grunden lægge.

5 Eksempler meget her formaar,
Fordi de Unges Aasyn staar
Op paa Forældres Øie,
Den Dyd de daglig hos dem ser,
Den Synd og Last, som ved dem skeer,
Den følge de saa nøie.

6 Saa vogter eder derfor vel,
At ingen ung, unskyldig Sjæl
Af eder skal forføres,
Men at de kan i eders Trin
Omsoles udaf Dyders Skin
Og til Guds Ære røres.

7 Naar de kan gaa og tale ret,
Ser til, at Jesus bliver sæt
Dem udi Sjæle-Minde,
Til Herrens Hus ved eders Haand
Fremleder dem, paa det Guds Aand
Maa Bolig i dem finde.

8 Saa faar I se, hvordan de skal,
Som Træet i den grønne Dal,
Opvokse, Frugter bære,
Saa hæderlig en Alder faa,
Paa Visdoms Veie altid gaa
Og naadekronet være.

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. At first he essayed patriotic poems, but later devoted h… Go to person page >
