1 O Kristenhed! i Nattens Stund,
Der Sukket brast fra Hjertets Grund,
Og hart du stred med Døden,
Dig horte Gud i Himlens slot,
Han saa at µorket ie var godt,
Og frelste dig i Nøden;
Herlig, Herlig
Slukte Naaden
Kirke-Graaden,
Gid vor Tunge
Værdig kunde det udsjunge!

2 Frem Luther stod, en Kjæmpe bold,
Ham Gud gav Troens stærke Skjold,
Og Ordets Sværd det gjæve;
Op slog han Helligdommens Bog,
I Ledingsfærd mod Løgnen drog,
Og Mørkets Skaver bæve.
Herren, Herren
Med han strider,
Natten lider,
Dagen rinder,
Vei til Himmerig du finder.

3 Os hvilte Herrens Oie paa,
Og Lysets blide Straaler naa
Ud over Fjeld og Dale;
Vankundigt Folket gik med Taal,
Men paa sit eget Tungemaal
Det nu fornam Guds Tale,
Eia! Eia!
Kirkens Hyrde,
Tog vor byrde,
Kalder, bringer
Os til Gud paa Aandesn Vinger.

4 Nu hjælpe Gud, som hjalp os hid,
At vi fuldende Troens Strid
I Luthers fodspor glade!
Hjælp Gud, i Lys og Løn vi maa
Paa Sandheds Vei retsindig gaa,
Og aldrig der forlade!
Velsign! Velsign
Folk og Rige!
Høit opstige
Det med Hæder
Bed dit Lys i Dyd og Glæder!

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.
