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.

Til dit Hus med Takkesang

Representative Text

1 Til dit Hus med Takkesang
Kommer jeg, min Gud, tilbage,
Holder glad min Kirkegang,
Du i Naade mig modtage,
Hellige min Sjæl og Aand,
Du, som har mit Liv i Haand!

2 Jesus, paa dit Ord jeg vil,
Som Maria, stille høre,
Giv Velsignelse dertil,
At jeg maa derefter gjøre,
Have og i Minde vel,
Hvad der er den gode Del!

3 Siden frisk og glad jeg kan
Ogsaa Husets Omsorg bære,
Takke dig, min Frelsermand,
For de mange Gaver kjære;
Glæden dog i dig er bedst,
Vær hos mig en daglig Gjæst!

4 Vend, o Jesus, hid din Gang,
Hellige min Moderglæde,
Se til Barnet paa mit Fang,
Du, som elsker saa de Spæde,
Du, som selv har spæd og arm
Ligget ved en Moders Barm.

5 Giv, jeg altid huld og tro
Dig, o Herre, kunde tjene!
Kom, velsigne Brød og Bo,
Og din søde Fred forlene!
Gjør mit Hus al Tiden om
Til din egen Helligdom!

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.

He took a theological degree (cand. theol) in 1827, and worked after that as the resident chaplain in Gausdal for six years.
