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 seierrige frelsermand

Representative Text

1 O seierrige Frelsermand!
Som bar al Verdens Synders Ban,
Nu tager du dit Sæde Hos
Majestætens Høire Haand,
At lægge Satans Magt i Baand
Og ganske undertræde.
Mægtig
Prægtig!
Triumferer,
Jubilerer!
Døden, Livet
Er vor Jesus undergivet!

2 Den store Flok af Kerubim
Og mange tusind Serafim
Dig prise høit formøiet,
At du os Freden haver bragt,
Og til saa stor en Guddoms Pragt
Og Glæde er ophøiet.
Møder,
Støder
Glade sammen,
Amen, Amen!
Magt og Ære
Skal vor Jesus evig være!

3 Du er vort Hoved; derimod
Vi dine Lemmer, Kjød og Blod,
I dig vi have Livet;
Fred, Glæde, Styrke, Mod og Lyst,
Forfriskelse og Hjertens Trøst
Af dig os vorder givet.
Sind, Mod,
Liv, Blod,
Hver en Draabe
Synge, raabe
Fuld af Glæde:
Lovet Krist i Ærens Sæde!

4 Drag Jesus, drag os efter dig!
At hver fremdeles stadelig
Dit Rige eftertragter;
Lad os vor Vandring føre saa,
At Ydmyghed kan med os gaa,
Som Verdens Pragt foragter!
Stød ned
Stolthed
Af vort Hjerte,
I vor Smerte
Du os minde,
Hvor din Naade er at finde!

5 O Jesus, vær vort Skjul og Skjold,
Vor Ros og Skat, vor Rednings Vold,
Hvorpaa vi os forlade.
Og søge kun vor Himmelskat;
Thi Verden ligger i en Nat
Af List og Løgn og Skade.
Hvor vi
Os i
Verden vende,
Kan vi kjende
Nød og Plage
Alle vore Ventedage.

6 Kom Naadens Throne, Jesus Krist,
Du Seiers-Fyrste, Davids Kvist,
At stille vore Sukke!
Kom du, som var saa mild og god,
At ville med dit dyre Blod
Guds Hellingdom oplukke!
Kom brat,
Vor Skat,
Hjertemilde!
Vi da ville
Med dig stige
Ind i søde Himmerige!

Ernst C. Homburg (b. Mihla, near Eisenach, Germany, 1605; d. Naumberg, Germany, 1681) wrote most of his hymns for his own devotions. He described this eight-stanza text as a "hymn of thanksgiving to his Redeemer and Savior for his bitter sufferings." In early life, Homburg was a writer of love and drinking songs. After a difficult time of family illness he experienced a religious conversion, and his poetry took a more serious turn. A lawyer by profession, he wrote hymns to express and strengthen his own faith rather than for public use. Some 150 of his hymn texts were published in his Geistliche Lieder.

Although the tune was originally more varied rhythmically, the hymnal version here is isorhythmic (all equal rhythms) and set to the rich ha…
