O vilde du betænke

Full Text

Jesus:
1 O, vilde du betænke
Min Pine og min Død!
Jeg vilde Livet skjænke
Dig for den evig; Død,
Og byde dig god Hvile,
For alle Sorgens Pile,
Ja Himlens Glæde sød.

2 Jeg haver dig ei vundet
Med Sølv ei heller Guld,
Mit Hjerteblod er rundet,
Hvi er du mig ei huld?
Men efter Verden higer,
Ei sanser det, jeg siger:
Den Gjør dig vaandefuld.

3 Hvo Rigdom her begjærer
I denne Armodsdom,
Han faar, hvad Rust fortærer,
Bli'r hjertetræt og tom;
Den Rigdom, som gjør Sjæle
Evindeligen sæle,
Har i Guds rige Rum.

4 Thi lader eder nøie
Med det, I have faa't,
Min Fader skal tilføie
Sit kjære Barn alt Godt;
Til mig vend eders Længsel,
I Verden har I Trængsel,
I mig er Freden blot!

5 Se Liljerne i Enge,
Hvor lystelig de staa!
De har ei kjøbt for Penge
Den Bryd, de have paa;
Kong Solomon den rige
For den smaa Blomst maa vige,
Som jeg har klædet faa.

6 Se, alle de smaa Jugle
Til Redet flyve snar',
Og Nævene sin Hule
Ved min Forsyning har;
Selv har jeg ei en Pude,
Mit Hoved paa at lude,
For mig dog nok det var.

7 Er Himmel, Jord ei mine,
Dens Herlighed, hvert Gran,
Mon jeg da ei forsyne
Mit Folk med Føde kan?
Jeg Isra'l har bespiset,
Dem rette Veien viset
Til det forjetted' Land.

8 Saa lad ei Hjertet bløde
I mine Fode-Trin
For Klæder og for Føde,
Den Sorg lad være min!
Jeg eder vil forsyne,
Agt Ordene kun mine,
Og kom til mig herind!

Menigheden:
9 Tak, Pris og Ære Være
Vor Gud i Evighed
For sin den føde Lære,
Som han os haver ted!
Han give, at vi kunde
Ret paa hans godhed grunde,
Vor Sjæl til Salighed!

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. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >

Magnus Brostrup Landstad (born 7 October 1802 in Måsøy, Norway and died 8 October 1880 in Kristiania) was a Norwegian minister, psalmist and poet who published the first collection of authentic Norwegian traditional ballads in 1853. This work was criticized for unscientific methods, but today it is commonly accepted that he contributed significantly to the preservation of the traditional ballads. Landstad lived with his father Hans Landstad (1771–1838) who was also a minister, first in 1806 to Øksnes, to Vinje in 1811 and to Seljord in 1819. He took a theological degree (cand. theol) in 1827, and worked after that as the resident chaplain in Gausdal for six years. After that he worked in different parishes in Telemark, Østfold befo… Go to person page >
