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.

O Jesus, præst i evighed

Representative Text

1 O Jesus, Præst i Evighed!
Her lader du det kjende,
Hvorfor dig Gud af Himlen ned
Til Jorden vilde sende:
At Syndere du kunde med
Din Fader vel forlige,
Og give dem ei Blive-Sted
Hos dig i Ærens Rige.

2 Og nu Disciplene, som skal
Det Fredens Embed føre,
Saa de paa Jorden Himlens Sal
Med Sjæle rig kan gjøre,
Dem styrker du med Naad og Fred
Og deres Synd forsoner,
Og dem med Himlens Myndighed
Og store Naade kroner.

3 Som Faderen har dig udsendt,
Og salvet uden Maade
Med Aand og Kraft, som vel er kjendt,
Saa vil du og i Naade
Hos dem med Aand og Styrke staa,
Som dine Bud skal være
Og om i hele Verden gaa,
Dit salig' Ord at lære.

4 O Jesus giv mig Naade til
Det Embede at Ære,
Som du saa høit selv hædre vil,
At jeg dit Ord og Lære
Ei blæser hen i Veir og Vind,
Saa jeg forstokket bliver,
Og i mit flinte-haarde Sind
Til Døden bundet bliver!

5 Det Trøste-Ord, som du har sendt
Til Angergivne alle,
Som har sin Synd med sorg bekjendt,
Lad paa mit Hjerte falde!
Lad mig min Synds Afløsning faa,
Løs her min Synde-Kjæde!
Saa er jeg fri, at jeg kan staa
For Domstol din med Glæde.

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.
