Sortnet var den gyldne Sol

Full Text

1 Sortnet var den gyldne Sol,
Da min Frelser rolig
Gud i Vold sin Aand befol,
Som en Søn fortrolig.

Hvad end før jeg frister,
Sjælen lægge Gud i Favn,
Naar mit Øie brister.

2 Da det sidste Suk han gav,
Hele Jorden bæved,
Klipper revned, og fra Grav
Døden sig da hæved.
Gjør hans Suk det Underværk,
Hvad da Hersker-Tonen!
Er paa Korset han saa stærk,
Hvad da ei paa Thronen!

3 Lær os Frelser, Livets Væld,
Hvad din Død betyder,
Saa vi til dit Kors med Skjel
Nagle vore Lyder!
Lær i Aanden os at saa
Grædende herneden,
Saa du Lovsang høste maa,
Naar vi fare heden!

In 1810 he became assistant to his father in a parish in Jutland. The sermon he preached at his ordination, on the subject "Why has the Lord's word disappeared from His house," attracted much attention, which is rarely the case with "pro… Go to person page >
