Salig er de døde, hine

Full Text

1 Salig er de Døde, hine
Som dø i Herren, ingen Pine
Skal nodensinde røre dem;
Aanden siger, at de hvile,
Og brudte ere Dødens Pile,
De fundet har et Fredens Hjem!
Og deres Gjerning al
Dem hisset følge skal.
Lover Herren! som vel har gjort;
Dem, som gik bort,
Han favner inden Himlens Port.

2 Tak, tilbedelse og Ære,
Magt Visdom, Herlighed skal være
Guds Lam, som Verdens Synder bar!
Skare, som har overvundet,
Som har din Seiers-krone fundet,
Pris Lammet, som opofret var!
Han gik for os i Grav,
Vi staa med ham deraf,
Synge Seier-og Glaædeskvad
I Englerad,
I Herrens Lys og Himlens Stad!

3 Ikke Maanen, ikke Solen,
Et bedre Lys fra Naadestolen
Er Krist, Guds Søn, vor Herre bold;
Dagen, hvortil vi har stundet,
Nu, Gud ske Lov, er den oprundet,
Vor Herre self er Sol og Skjold1
Nu græde vi ei mer,
Det Gamle ude er,
Halleluja! Her er det Ny!
Bort Gravnats-Sky!
rind op, guds store Morgengry!

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.
