Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

O Jesu Krist, dig till oss vänd

Representative Text

1 O Jesus Krist, dig till os vänd,
Din Helge Ande till oss sänd;
Vår andakt väck, vår suckan hör
Och oss på lifvets väg själf för.

2 Upplåt vår mun till idtt namns pris,
På oss din nådes kraft bevis,
Förök vår tro, upplys vår själ
Ditt helga ord att lära väl.

3 Till dess vi sjunga med Guds här:
Gud helig,helig,helig är,
Och saligt skäda ljusens Far
Bland änglaskaror uppenbar.

4 Ära ske Fadern och hans Son,
Den Helge And' i samma tron!
Den heliga treenighet
Ske pris och lof i evighet!
