Representative Text

1 Salig er den Mand, som ikke
Vanker i de Ondes Sag,
Gaar ei efter Synde-Skikke,
Sidder ei i Spotter-lag,
Men hvis Lyst er Herrens Ord,
Herrens Lov og Ret paa Jord,
Og som alt sit Liv til Ende
Grunder paa Guds Vei at kjende!

2 Som et Træ, der stander plantet
Ved en Bæk i fagre Dal,
Grønnes op fra Aar til andet,
Og bær Frugter uden Tal,
Saa den Fromme hos sin Gud
Staar i Aanden frisk og prud,
Med Velsignelser han smykkes,
Hvad han gjør, da skal det lykkes.

3 Men, o Kristne! anderledes
Vorder med de Onde gjort,
De er Avner lig, som spredes,
Og af Veieret blæses bort.
Derfor ei, naar Dommen gaar
Over Jorden, de bestaar,
Men, hvor Fromme frelste mødes,
Alle Syndere udstødes.

4 Thi de Godes Værk og Veie
Kjendes Gud af Naade ved,
Den Velsignelse, de eie,
Vare skal i Evighed,
Men de Ondes Agt og Id
Skal forgaa til evig Tid.
Hjælpe Gud da os i Naade
Til ret Vei og Vandringsmaade!

Paul Gerhardt (b. GraEenhainichen, Saxony, Germany, 1607; d. Lubben, Germany, 1676), famous author of Lutheran evangelical hymns, studied theology and hymnody at the University of Wittenberg and then was a tutor in Berlin, where he became friends with Johann Crüger. He served the Lutheran parish of Mittenwalde near Berlin (1651-1657) and the great St. Nicholas' Church in Berlin (1657-1666). Friederich William, the Calvinist elector, had issued an edict that forbade the various Protestant groups to fight each other. Although Gerhardt did not want strife between the churches, he refused to comply with the edict because he thought it opposed the Lutheran "Formula of Concord," which con­demned some Calvinist doctrines. Consequently, he was re… 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 >
