1 O Sjæle-Hyrde, Gud og Mand,
Hvo kan dog nok udgrunde
Din Kjærlighed, som alle Land
Maa prise alle Stunde!

2 Du havde Himlens Herredom
I evig Arv og Eie,
Mod hvilken Verden om og om
Slet intet kunde veie.

3 Din Faders Lyst af Evighed
Du altid var, og vilde
Dog her paa Jorden komme ned,
Og Satans Værk forspilde.

4 Din store Lyst du havde dog
Til Mennesken' at føre
Fra synd og Satans haarde Aag,
Og dem at saliggjøre.

5 Du klædte dig udi vort Kjød,
En tjener her at være,
Og undergav dig Nød og Død
For Mennesken' at ære.

6 Du fandt saa vild en Hjord udi
En høist fortvilet Vaade,
Straks hegned du en Faare-Sti
Udaf din store Naade.

7 Didhen du kaldte hver og en,
Og vilde dem udlede
Fra Satan, Synd og Dødsens Meen,
Og fra din Faders Vrede.

8 Jeg kom og ind, og straks fornam
Udaf dit Ord med Glæde,
Hvor du, o Guds uskyldig' Lam!
Var Døren at indtræde.

9 Den Helligaand, Dørvogter der
For Fattige og Rige,
Oplukker villig for enhver,
Som ret derind vil stige.

He belonged to a rather poor family partly of Scottish origin and was educated a clergyman. In his youth, Kingo wrote a series of poems picturing humorous scenes in village life and a pastoral love poem, Chrysillis. He studied theology at the University of Copenhagen, graduating in 1654, and for some time acted as private tutor. In 1661 he was appointed vicar to the pastor at Kirke Helsinge, and in 1668 he was ordained a minister at his native town, where his poetic activity began.
