We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

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. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

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!

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 >
