Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

O Lue fra Guds kjærlighed

Representative Text

O Lue fra Guds Kjærlighed,
O Visdom fra det Høie,
Som faldt paa dine Vidner ned,
Oplys vor Troes Øie!
Om Ordets Lys vi samles her,
Vis os, at Kristi Løfte er
Et evigt Ja og Amen!
O himmelfarne Felsere,
Vi vente din Forjættelse,
Velsign os allesammen!

Author: Birgitte K. Boye

Birgitte was born on March 7, 1742, in Gen­tofte, Den­mark. She was the daughter of Jens Jo­han­sen. Boye mar­ried a su­preme court judge in Co­pen­ha­gen, Den­mark. She found time to study German, French and English and translated hymns into Danish from these languages. As a hym­nist, she was in­volved with Guld­bergs og Har­boes Psalm­e­bog (Ove Guld­berg’s and Lud­vig Har­boe’s Psalt­er), to which she con­trib­ut­ed 146 hymns. She al­so pro­duced "na­tion­al dra­ma­tic writ­ing." She died on Oc­to­ber 17, 1824. Sources: Julian, p. 1001 & Stulken, p. 145  Go to person page >
