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 kommer hid fra alle land

Representative Text

1 O, kommer hid fra alle Land,
Det Syn at hjertefeste!
En fattig, syg og saaret Mand
Idag skal Himlen gjeste.
Du længes saart, du arme Sjæl,
I al din Nød hvor er du sæl,
Din Del er dog den bedste!

2 O Menneske! hvad gavned vel,
Du vandt al Verden vide,
Naar du tog skade paa din Sjæl,
Og maatte evig lide?
Din Pine ingen lindre kan,
Du brænde maa i Helveds Brand,
Af Tørst din Tunge svide!

3 Thi se! der er et Dyb saa stort
Og svælgende befestet,
At ingen, som er kastet bort,
Guds rige haver gjestet.
O kjære Sjæl, det kvælder fort,
Med Skyld og Gjæld gak ikke bort!
Da kræves alt, som rested.

4 Den Mand, som leved her saa tryg
I Synd og Verdens Glæde,
Og kasted Guds Ord bag sin Ryg,
Gav Armod ei at æde,
Han døde og blev graven ned,
Men vaagned op i Pinens Sted,
Hvor Dømte haabløst græde.

5 Men Lazarus, Gud kjender ham
Sin Ven i Armods Vaande!
Slig Fattigdom og Verdens Skam
Vi Gud selv gaa til Haande;
Guds Engle stode Flok i Flok
Paa Vente om hans Sengestok,
Der han opgav sin Aande.

6 De bar hans Sjæl med Glædesang
Og gave Gud i Hænde;
Den Port var snæver, Veien trang,
Han havde faaet kjende.
I Abrahams udvalgte skjød
Der Fik han hvile i sin Død,
Gud unde os slig Ende!

Magnus Brostrup Landstad (born 7 October 1802 in Måsøy, Norway and died 8 October 1880 in Kristiania) was a Norwegian minister, psalmist and poet who published the first collection of authentic Norwegian traditional ballads in 1853. This work was criticized for unscientific methods, but today it is commonly accepted that he contributed significantly to the preservation of the traditional ballads. Landstad lived with his father Hans Landstad (1771–1838) who was also a minister, first in 1806 to Øksnes, to Vinje in 1811 and to Seljord in 1819. He took a theological degree (cand. theol) in 1827, and worked after that as the resident chaplain in Gausdal for six years. After that he worked in different parishes in Telemark, Østfold befo… Go to person page >
