We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Representative Text

1 Sjaa, Dagen sprett
I Anster-ætt!
Han Livet upp vil yngja.
Sjaa, Skuggar fly,
Og Solglytt ny
No gyller Sky,
Og tusund Munnar syngja!

2 I Morgonstund
Ved Uppstadmund
Eg vil min skapar lova.
Han vaker vel
Fyr Israel,
So trygg og sæl
Eg i Guds Fred kann sova.

3 Du Sannings Sol,
Som rann i Jol,
Ver du mi Morgonstjerna!
Lys upp min Gang
Som vidsynt Vang
All Dagen lang
Mot Myrkers Vald meg verna!

4 I all mi Gjerd
Paa Livsens erd
Ditt Ord mitt Ljos maa vera!
Gud, styr min Stamn
Til Himmelhamn
I Jesu Namn!
So skal nog Baaten bera.

5 So lid og renn
Ein Dag um Senn
Med Sol i Skuggedalar.
Snart Natti lid,
Og fram det skrid
Til Morgon blid
Med Song i Himmelsalar.
