Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? 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 tænk, naar engang samles skal

Representative Text

1 O tænk, naar engang samles skal
De Frelstes Menighed
Af alle Folkeslegters Tal
I Himlens Herlighed!
I Himlens Herlighed!

2 O tænk, naar Herrens Vidnehær,
Hans Tjenere paa Jord,
De Milioner møde der,
Som hørte deres Ord!
Som hørte deres Ord!

3 O tænk dog, hvilken Jubellyd–
En Strøm af Kjærlighed!
Tænk, hvilken Tak og Pris og Fryd
Og Salighed og Fred!
Og Salighed og Fred!

4 O Gud, hvad er din Naade stor!
Os alle til dig drag,
At vi kan staa blandt Frelstes Kor
Paa denne Høitidsdag!
Paa denne Høitidsdag!

Author: Wilhelm Andreas Wexels

Wexels, Wilhelm Andreas. (Copenhagen, Denmark, March 29, 1797--May 14, 1866, Oslo, Norway). Lutheran. After studies in Copenhagen and Christiana (Oslo), became catechist and curate of Our Savior's Lutheran Church in Christiana. Preached against the inroads of rationalism, emphasizing the need for spiritual revival. Church historians claim that his ministry was the turning point in the Church of Norway. Failed in his attempt to give Norway a hymnal, but many of his hymns survived. --J. Irving Erickson, DNAH Archives Go to person page >
