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.

Uværdig er jeg, Herre

Uværdig er jeg, Herre

Representative Text

1 Uværdig er jeg, Herre,
Til al din Miskundhed,
Fortjente ei at være
Som Barn blandt dine med.
Jeg staar saa langt tilbage
I barnlig Lydighed,
Jeg maa mi selv anklage,
Jeg synder mangeled.

2 Jeg er saa ganske ringe,
Saa fattig og saa tom,
Jeg kan dig Intet bringe
Til Gave, Herre from!
Jeg eier kun et Hjerte,
Hvis hele Haab er du,
Det brast udi sin Smerte,
Kom du mig ei ihu.

3 Og dag jeg jerne vilde
Dig elske inderlig;
O Kjærlighedens Kilde,
Indgyd dit Liv i mig!
Jeg aldrig dig kan give
Den Tak,jeg skylder dig,
Men, maa jeg tro dig blive,
Da er jeg lykkelig.

Wexels, Wilhelm Andreas. (Copenhagen, Denmark, March 29, 1797--May 14, 1866, Oslo, Norway). Lutheran. After studies in Copenhagen and Christiana (Oslo), became catechist and curate of Our Savior's Lutheran Church in Christiana. Preached against the inroads of rationalism, emphasizing the need for spiritual revival. Church historians claim that his ministry was the turning point in the Church of Norway. Failed in his attempt to give Norway a hymnal, but many of his hymns survived. --J. Irving Erickson, DNAH Archives Go to person page >
