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, som har elsket mig

O Jesus, som har elsket mig

Representative Text

1 O Jesus, som har elsket mig,
Ja med saa overmaade
Aldeles ubegribelig
En Kjærlighed og Naade,
O, tænd mit Hjerte op igjen
Med Kjærlighedens Iver,
At jeg giver
Mig ganske til dig hen,
Og altid hos dig bliver!

2 Det var din Hjertens Kjærlighed,
Der bragte mig den Naade,
At du for mine Synder led
Den haade Dødsens Vaade.
Ak, maatte jeg din Pines Sag,
De dybe Naadens Grunde
Saa tilstunde,
At Sjælen Nat og Dag
Til dig opløftes kunde!

3 Min Trøst, mit Lys, min bedste Ven
Og største Lyst i Livet,
O hav mig, tag mig ganske hen!
Dig har jeg mig hengivet;
Thi uden dig er Verden mørk,
Et Fængsel kun at kalde,
Gift og Galde,
Et øde Sted, en Ørk,
Hvor tunge Taarer falde.

4 Men du er Sjælens trygge Havn
Mod alle Modgangs Vinde,
Ak lad mig i din Naades Favn
Den rette Hvile finde!
Din Kjærlighed som Sol i Vaar
Den kolde Is fortære,
Balsam være
For mine Syndesaar,
Som mig saa hart besvære!

5 Den samme trøste mig i Trang,
I Sygdoms Tid mig styrke,
Og naar jeg endelig en Gang
Skal ind i Dødens Mørke,
Da lad den lyse op min Sti,
Og stande ved min Side,
Med mig stride!
Saa gaar jeg frelst og fri
Fra hele Verdens Kvide.

Paul Gerhardt (b. GraEenhainichen, Saxony, Germany, 1607; d. Lubben, Germany, 1676), famous author of Lutheran evangelical hymns, studied theology and hymnody at the University of Wittenberg and then was a tutor in Berlin, where he became friends with Johann Crüger. He served the Lutheran parish of Mittenwalde near Berlin (1651-1657) and the great St. Nicholas' Church in Berlin (1657-1666). Friederich William, the Calvinist elector, had issued an edict that forbade the various Protestant groups to fight each other. Although Gerhardt did not want strife between the churches, he refused to comply with the edict because he thought it opposed the Lutheran "Formula of Concord," which con­demned some Calvinist doctrines. Consequently, he was re… Go to person page >
