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.

Sorgen og Glæden de vandre tilhobe

Tune: [Sorgen og Glæden de vandre tilhobe]
Published in 4 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Sorgen og Glæden de vandre tilhobe,
Lykke og Ulykke gange paa Rad,
Medgang og Modgang hinanden tilraabe,
Solskin og skyer de følges og ad;
Jorderigs Guld
Er prægtigt Muld,
Himlen er ene af Salighed fuld.

2 Alle Ting har sin foranderlig Lykke,
Alle kan finde en Sorg i sin Barm,
Tidt ere Bryst under dyrebart Smykke
Fuld af Sorger og hemmelig Harm;
Alle har Sit,
Stort eller Lidt,
Himlen alene for Sorgen er kvit.

3 Vælde og Visdom og timelig Ære,
Styrke og Ungdom i blomstrende Aar
Høit over andre kan Hovedet bære,
Falder dog af og i Tiden forgaar;
Alle Ting maa
Enden opnaa,
Himmelens Salighed ene skal staa.

4 Deiligste Roser paa Tornebusk gløde,
Skjønneste Blomster har tærende Gift,
Under en Rosenkind Hjertet kan bløde
For at dog Skjæbnen saa sælsomt er skift;
I Vaade-Vand
Flyder vort Land,
Himlen har ene Lyksaligheds Stand.

5 Vel da, saa vil jeg mig aldrig bemøie,
Om ikke Verden gaar efter min Agt,
Ingen Bekymring skal kunne mig bøie,
Intet skal gjøre mig Hjerte forsagt:
Sorgen skal dø,
Glædernes Frø
Blomstre paa Himle-Lyksaligheds Ø.

6 Angest skal avle en varende Glæde,
Kvide skal vinde sin Tot udaf Teen,
Armod skal prydes i rigeste Klæde
Svaghed skal reises paa sundeste Ben,
Avind skal staa
Fængslet i Vraa,
Himlen kan ene alt dette formaa.

7 Lad da min Lod og min Lykke kun falde,
Hvordan min gud og min Herre han vil,
Lad ikkun Avind udøse sin Galde,
Lad kun og Verden fuld drive sit Spil;
Tidernes Bon
Bliver dog tom,
Himlen skal vende det altsammen om.

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 >
