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.

Op, thi dagen nu frembryder

Representative Text

1 Op, thi Dagen nu frembryder,
Som den hele Verden fryder!
Op, thi Naadens gyldne Aar
Frem med Lys og Glæde gaar,
Som de Gamle før saa saare
Ventede med Længsels Taare!
Halleluja! Halleluja!

2 Den, som mange Majestæter,
Fromme Fædre og Profeter
Har tilforen villet se,
Og det dog ei kunde ske,
Han til os saa kjærlig kommer,
O, en yndig Naades Sommer!
Halleluja! Halleluja!

3 Den, som Abraham var lovet,
Menighedens Liv og Hoved,
Jakobs Krone, Sol og Lyst,
Alle Folkes Haab og Trøst,
Fandt sig hos os ind omsider,
Sagtelig til Zion rider.
Halleluja! Halleluja!

4 Her er han, som vil fuldføre,
Hvad hans Fader bød at gjøre,
Han vil gjøre Sagen god
Med sit dyrebare Blod,
Pint, foragtet, ilde saaret,
Sanke det, som vor forloret.
Halleluja! Halleluja!

5 Nu maa Skyggen bort sig vende,
Og det Billedverk faa Ende;
Hvad behøves Offer mer?
Jesus et fuldgyldigt er.
Hvad har Pagtens Ark at sige?
Her er Naadens rette Rige.
Halleluja! Halleluja!

6 Mose Rige nu ophører,
Kristi Friheds Aand os fører,
Borte er den Trældoms Frygt;
Hvo Guds Naade ret har søgt,
Kan nu fuldt sig dertil fryde,
Barnefriheds Stand at nyde.
Halleluja! Halleluja!

7 Nu er Forhæng sønderrevet,
Aabnet os en Indgang blevet,
I Guds Helligdom at gaa,
For ham uden Frygt at staa;
Han, som Verdens Lys er blevet,
Nattens Mørkhed har fordrevet.
Halleluja! Halleluja!

8 Derfor, Zion, op at sjunge,
Og velsigne denne Konge!
Byd du ham dit Hjerte til,
Du er Brud med dig han vil
Riget dele: lad dig føre
Ham til Offer, lad dig høre!
Halleluja! Halleluja!
