Op alle, som paa Jorden bor

Full Text

1 Op alle, som paa Jorden bor,
Og takker Gud med mig,
Hvis Lov i hellig Englekor
Udsjunges idelig!
Udsjunges idelig!

2 Han giver Helbred, Lov og Brød
Os alle ufortjent,
I megen Angest, Sorg og Nød
Har han os Hjælp tilsendt,
Har han os Hjælp tilsendt.

3 Skjønt vore synder for ham staar,
Han dog langmodig er,
Og gjør, at vi for Straffen faar
Endog Velgjerninger,
Endog Velgjerninger.

4 Han give os et Hjerte for
Og sand Frimodighed,
At vi kan tjene ham med Ro
I Verdens Vildsomhed!
I Verdens Vildsomhed!

5 Vort Land, sit eget Israel,
Beskjerme han fra Nød,
Han lade al Ting lykkes vel,
Og give dagligt Brød!
Og give dagligt Brød!

6 Hans Naade staa os kraftig bi
I alle Gjerninger,
Fra Synd og Sorger han os fri,
Thi han vor Fader er!
Thi han vor Fader er!

7 Saa længe her vi lebe skal,
Er han vor sol og Skjold,
Ved Udgang af vor Jammerdal
Vi blive i Behold,
Vi blive i Behold.

8 Vort Øie han selv lukker til
I Dødens tunge Nat,
Og naar vort Hjerte briste vil,
Er han vor Del og Skat,
Er han vor Del og Skat.

In the registers of St. Mary's church, Wittenberg, his name appears as a godfather, on July 13, 1641, described still as "studiosus," and he seems to have remained in Wittenberg till at least the end of April, 1642. He appears to have gone to Berlin in 1642 or 1643, and was there for some time (certainly after 1648) a tutor in the house of the advocate Andreas Barthold, whose daughter (Anna Maria, b. May 19, 1622, d. March 5, 1668) became his wife in 1655. During this period he seems to have frequently preached in Berlin. He was appoint… Go to person page >

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.
