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, verdens frelsermand

Representative Text

1 O Jesus, Verdens Frelsermand
Du store Livsens Fyrste,
Som Hjorten efter Kilde-Vand
Min Sjæl for dig mon tørste!
O du, Gud Faders evig' Søn,
Som vilde fra dig Rige
Dybt nedstige,
At frelse Adams Kjøn
Og Satan at bekrige.

2 Du haver med dit dyre Blod
For mig og alle sonet,
Og gjort fuldkommen Syndebod,
For evig Død os skaanet,
Om vi ei ubodfærdelig
I Synden os formaster,
Og forkaster
Vor Arv i Himmerig
Ved Vantro vor og Laster.

3 Og om jeg havde synder fler,
End Havets Sand i Mængde,
Og Satan, som min Ufærd ser,
Med Fristelser mig trængte,
I Troen ham jeg træder mod
Med Jesu Værdskylds Baade
Og den Naade,
Jeg have i hans Blod,
Som ei har Maal og Maade!

4 Skal jeg og efter Guds Behag
Her mer end andre være
Af Korset bøiet og hver Dag
Min Byrde møisom bære,
Min Sjæl forbedres dog derved,
Thi du mig understøtter,
Korset nytter,
Thi ved Taalmodighed
Jeg nær til Himlen flytter.

5 Naar Svaghed mig og lægger paa
Min Sotteseng, og Smerte
Mig griber fat fra Top til Taa,
Til Marv, til Ben og Hjerte,
Da trøster mig din Pines Fynd,
Som jeg i Sjælen finder,
Smerten svinder,
Du sonet har min Synd,
Det mine Saar forbinder.

6 Og endelig i Dødens Stund,
Naar Øinene vil briste,
Skal ingen i den sidste Blund
Af Troens Haand dig vriste;
Men paa din Død jeg dristelig
Og i din Tro vil vove
At hensove,
Du ta'r min Sjæl til dig,
Som skal dig evig love.

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 >
