Representative Text

1 O Stjerners Skaber i himmelske Hus,
Som est de Troendes evige Lys,
O Christe, som har os alle gjenløst,
Hør du de Ydmyges bedende Røst.

2 Dig ynkedes over den store Nød,
At Verden laa under Synd og Død,
Da hjalp du Verden af dens Sygdom
Og gav de Skyldige Lægedom.

3 Der Verdens Aften lakkende kom,
Da gik du ud som en Brudgom
Af Herberget, hvor du prydet var,
saa fødtes du af en Jomfru klar.

4 For din almægtige Guddoms kraft
Maa knæle Alt, som du har skabt,
Alting i Himmelen og paa Jord
Bekjender din Villie og lyder dit Ord.

5 Ja Solen, som kjender sit Nedgangs-Sted,
Og Maanen baade i Ny og Ned',
Og Stjernerne som paa Himmelen gaa,
Dit Bud og Vink maa de agte paa.

6 Dig bede vi, o hellige Christ,
Som kommer til Verdens Dom forvist,
Bevar du os i rette Tid,
At os ei skaber Djævelens Id.

7 Gud Fader være guddommelig Pris,
Guds Søn saa prise vi ligervis.
Gud Helligaand med Hjerte og Mund
Vi ogsaa prise i allen Stund.

Ambrose was trained in legal studies and distinguished himself in a civic career, becoming a consul in Northern Italy. When the bishop of Milan, an Arian, died in 374, the people demanded that Ambrose, who was not ordained or even baptized, become the bishop. He was promptly baptized and ordained, and he remained bishop of Milan until his death. Ambrose successfully resisted the Arian heresy and the attempts of the Roman emperors to dominate the church.

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact.
