O Lue fra Guds kjærlighed

Full 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!

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 >
