We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. 

So, please, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? 

In April 2020, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1.5 million sessions from approximately 1 million users. Both numbers were up 40% from April 2019. Amazing. And what a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns.

And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source. 

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do. 

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.

Pengene, som Judas slængte

Pengene, som Judas slængte

Representative Text

1 Pengene, som Judas slængte
I de onde Presters Skjød,
Og den Løn, hvorfor han hængte
Som hans fule Indvold brød,
Vil ei deres Hyklesind
I Guds Kiste lægge ind;
Kirke-Blokken vil de spare,
Men ei Hjerterne forvare.

2 Derfor deres Naad behager,
At de Penge gives skal
For en Pottemagers Ager,
Somfor denne Pris er fal,
At og Pilegrime kan
Faa et ringe Hvileland;
Slige vil de der begrave,
Som blandt Guds Folk Lod ei have.

3 O min Jesus, o mig fattes
Sans i disse dybe Ting!
Himlen kan mod dig ei skattes,
Og ei hele Verdens Ring
Fuld af Perler, Sølv og Guld,
Dog kan nogle Fødders Muld
Mod dit Kjøb, o Jesus sættes–
Aldrig af min Hu dit slettes!

4 Men jeg vil begynd' at lære
Hos den Pottemagers Grav,
At mit Ler, som jeg mon bære,
Og den Krop, som Gud mig gav,
Aldrig skal hovmode sig,
Om den kunde endelig
Udaf Guld og Perler braske,
Thi den er dog Ler og Aske.

5 Jeg var fremmed (Gud det bedre!)
Som jeg daglig mindes vel,
Jeg saavelsom mine Fædre
Fremmed var for Israel;
Men nu har vi Del og Part
Blandt Guds egen Børne-Art,
Nu har vi et Gravsted fundet,
Som ved Jesu Blod er vundet.

6 Fremmed er vi alle Dage,
Pilegrime i vor Færd;
Naar vi engang skal afdrage
Vanderklædet, som vi bær,
Og i Graven lægge ned
Al vor Pragt og Herlighed,
Tak, o Jesus, vi maa eie
Ved dit Blod et roligt Leie!

7 Det er nu mit Hjertes Glæde,
Mens jeg bor i dette Ler,
Ved hvert Fjed, som jeg mon træde,
At jeg stunder mer og mer
Til det Sted, hvor jeg en Vraa
Skal udi Guds Ager faa,
Hvor jeg mig til Ro kan give
Som en Sæd, der saaes til Live.

8 Jesus, gjør det for din Pine,
At hvor jeg i Verden gaar,
Jeg varsommelig kan trine,
Tænke, Graven aaben staar!
Gid jeg dør i salig Tro,
Naar jeg skal blandt Døde bo,
Og naar dommens Dag skal være,
Sank mit Ler til evig Ære.

Thomas Hansen Kingo (15 December 1634 – 14 October 1703 Odense) was a Danish bishop, poet and hymn-writer born at Slangerup, near Copenhagen. His work marked the high point of Danish baroque poetry. He belonged to a rather poor family partly of Scottish origin and was educated a clergyman. In his youth, Kingo wrote a series of poems picturing humorous scenes in village life and a pastoral love poem, Chrysillis. He studied theology at the University of Copenhagen, graduating in 1654, and for some time acted as private tutor. In 1661 he was appointed vicar to the pastor at Kirke Helsinge, and in 1668 he was ordained a minister at his native town, where his poetic activity began. At first he essayed patriotic poems, but later devoted h… Go to person page >
