O Jesus, paa din alterfod

Representative Text

1 O Jesus, paa din Alterfod
Med Hjertens Tro, med Bøn og Bod
Jeg knæler ned for dig, Guds Lam,
Som bar al Verdens Synd og Skam!

2 Mit Hjerte jeg til dig frembær,
Saa saaret det af Synden er,
O herre Jesus Krist, dit Blod
For mine Saar er Salve god!

3 Jeg er idag min Jesu Gjæst,
O Sjæl, betænk den høie Fest!
Han byder dig tilbords med sig,
Og med sig selv bespiser dig.

4 Her rækker han mig under Brød
Sit Legem, som led Korsets Død,
Og under Vin sit sande Blod,
Den dyre Naades Purpurflod.

5 Æd, drik, og vær af Hjertet glad
Ved denne mer end Englemad,
Og for den Skaal sig Jesus Tak,
Som aldrig nogen Engel drak!

6 Jeg tror og veed, hvad her jeg faar,
Endog min Sans det overgaar,
Jeg faar min Jesus sandt og ret,
Og af ham selv jeg bliver mæt.

7 Ser, I Guds Engle, ser herned,
Og ærer denne Lønlighed,
At Jesus hos Guds høire Haand
Er her i Testamentets Baand!

8 Der er han udi Glæden sød,
Her er han i velsignet Brød;
Der er han i sin Æres Kraft,
Her i Vindruens signed' Saft.

9 Hvordan det sker, det veed jeg ei,
Han har ei villet vist den Vei,
Min Sans saa høit sig ei bør sno,
Det er mig nok hans Ord at tro.

10 Saa glæd dig da, min Sjæl og Aand,
At dog Guds Tjeners ringe Haand
Maa række dig det salig' Pant,
Hvori sig gud til dig forbandt!

11 Det Bord, det er min Sjæles Kraft,
Der faar jeg Livets Himmelsaft,
Det er min Hjerte-Styrkes Rod,
Det er min Trøst, min Tro, mit Mod.

12 Det Bord er redt ved Sandheds Mund,
Til Salighedens faste Grund,
Det er mit Haab, som kvæger mig,
Mit Liv, min Lyst evindelig.

13 O Jesus, lad mig aldrig gaa
Fra dette Bord, hvor du er paa,
Jeg kaster jo al Verden hen,
Og længes altid did igjen!

14 Indtil du mig i Himmerig
Henflytte vil derop til dig,
Hvor mig skal evig Ære ske,
Og jeg har nok i dig at se.

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 >
