Synger for Herren og leger, I himmelske Hære!

Representative Text

1 Synger for Herren og leger, I himmelske Hære!
Takker vor Frelser, ophøier og giver ham Ære!
Kommer og ser,
Hvad her forunderlig sker,
Gud vil et Menneske være!

2 Synger for Herren og leger, al Jorderigs Ender!
Gud sig til Syndere arme miskundelig vender,
Naade og Fred
Sender han itl os herned,
Synger og klapper i Hænder!

3 Tænk, hvilket Under! hvor langt sig dog Gud har nedladet!
Tænk, hvilken Naade, havd Offer og trods han blev hadet!
Jesus er fødd,
Frelser os ud af al Nød,
Bøder alt, hvad os har skadet!

4 Gud aabenbaret is Kjødet, hvo kan det udgrunde!
Himmerigs Døre oplades i største Nøds Stunde!
Gud selv er her!
Skynder nu til ham enhver,
Favner ham fortest, I kunne!

5 Har du, o Herre, da ogsaa paa mig villet tænke?
Vil du dit Hjerte mig fuldt af Forbarmelse skjænke?
Hvor maa jeg da
Være saa inderlig glad,
At ingen sorg mig kan krænke!

6 Herligheds Konge, af Miskund du Manddom vil tage!
Hjertet af Kjærlighed fuldt jeg dig giver tilbage.
Herre! du er
Den, jeg allen har kjær,
Evig jeg Sund vil forsage.

7 O min Immanuel, kom i mit Hjerte af fødes!
Kom du, min Frelser! thi uden dig maa jeg forstødes.
Lev udi mig,
Gjor mig til Et nu med dig,
Gud signe Dagen, vi mødes!

8 Jesus, til dig vil jeg Hjertet, saa høit jeg kan, hæeve,
Lad mig din Yndest at vinde kun stunde og stræve!
Tag mig i Tugt,
Giv mig Omvendelsens Frugt:
Evig for dig kun at leve!

Tersteegen, Gerhard, a pious and useful mystic of the eighteenth century, was born at Mörs, Germany, November 25, 1697. He was carefully educated in his childhood, and then apprenticed (1715) to his older brother, a shopkeeper. He was religiously inclined from his youth, and upon coming of age he secured a humble cottage near Mühlheim, where he led a life of seclusion and self-denial for many years. At about thirty years of age he began to exhort and preach in private and public gatherings. His influence became very great, such was his reputation for piety and his success in talking, preaching, and writing concerning spiritual religion. He wrote one hundred and eleven hymns, most of which appeared in his Spiritual Flower Garden (1731). He… 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.
