O Jesus, du er min

1 O Jesus, du er min!
Jeg vil og være din,
Se, Hjerte, Sjæl og Livet
Har jeg, min Gud, dig givet,
O, tag da ganske mig!
Gjør, hvad dig kan behage,
Af mig i mine Dage,
Til jeg dig bliver lig!

2 Min Attraa, Gud, du ser,
At jeg nu aldrig mer
Mit Kjød vil tro og høre,
Og ei dets Vilje gjøre,
Men at din Aand, dit Ord
Mit Liv og Lys skal være,
Og saa mig Stien lære
Til de udvalgtes Kor.

3 O Jesus, drag du mig,
At løbe efter dig,
Ak lad din Haand oplette
Og løfte min den trætte,
Af Verden trykte Sjæl;
Riv selv de Baand i Stykker,
Som mig fra Himlen rykker
Og gjør til Jordens Træl!

4 Thi her er ingen ro
I denne Syndens Bø;
Dens Rigdom snart bortrinder,
Dens Herlighed forsvinder,
Og glæder ei min Aand!
Hvad Verden høiest skatter,
Det kvæler mer og matter,
End det fornøie kan.

5 Du, Jesus, er min Trøst,
Mit Hjertes bedste Lyst;
For Taarer, Angst og Møie,
Gi'r du mig evig Nøie
Og Herlighed for Brøst;
Men hvo sig Verden vælger
Og til dens Lyst sig sælger,
Han sig bedrager vist.

6 Jeg vil, i Hjertens Tro
Til dig, faa Sjæle-Ro,
Og mig fra dig ei vende
Indtil min sidste Ende.
Men paa dig fæste mig.
O Jesus, styrk mig Svage,
At ingen mig bedrage
Og skille maa fro dig!

7 Har jeg kun, Herre, dig,
Kan intet rokke mig;
Ei Jorden og dens Fagter,
Ei Himlen jeg da agter,
Maa jeg kun blive din;
Om Liv og Sjæl forsmægte,
Skal det mig ei anfægte,
Naar Jesus kun er min.

Neuss, Heinrich Georg, son of Andreas Neuss, surgeon at Elbingerode in the Harz, was born at Elbingerode, March 11, 1654, and entered the University of Erfurt in 1677 as a student of theology. In 1680 he became a private tutor at Heimburg, near Blankenburg, and then in 1683 conrector, and in 1684 rector of the school at Blankenburg in the Harz. In 1690 he was appointed assistant preacher at Wolfenbüttel, and soon afterwards diaconus of the Heinrichstadt church there. For holding prayer meetings, &c, he was denounced as a Pietist, and chose to resign rather than desist. In the same year, 1692, he became preacher at Hedwigsburg, and travelling Chaplain to Duke Rudolph August of Brunswick, who, at Easter, 1695, appointed him superintendent at… Go to person page >

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
