Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Vaagn op, du som sover, stat up fra de Doøde

Representative Text

1 Vaagn op, du, som sover, staa op fra de Døde,
Krist lyser for dig!
Op, fer du ei Dagen, dens Straaler at gløde
Af Miskundhed rig!
Nu sov ikke længer,
Snært over dig hænger
En fortere Nat,
Om snart du ei favner din Skat.

2 I Jorderigs Dale, hvor Taagerne hænge,
Og Kinden er vaad,
Der lyder saa mange de sørgende Strenge
Af Suk og af Graad;
Af, hør disse Toner
Om Syndens Forsoner,
Om Seier og Fred!
Vor Herre er kommen herned!

3 I Jorderigs Dale, hvor Tornerne saare,
Er tungsomt at gaa,
Der længes saa mange med gr…dende Taare,
Til Freden at faa.
Nu stanse du Taaren,
Gud Glæde med Vaaren
I Kristus vi har,
Staa op, du som sover, vær snar!

4 Oplad dine Øine, og løft dem til Himlen,
Se nu er det Dag!
O, glæd dig som Barnet, og bland dig i Vrimlen,
Og Herren modtag!
Hvor Synderne tynge,
I Dagningen synge,
Som Fuglen i Skov,
De ventende Sjæle Guds Lov.

5 Ja Gud være lovet for Dagen, som skinner
Fra Himmelen ned!
Nu Sandheden, Veien og Livet jeg finder,
Og vandrer med Fred.
Lys for os, o Kriste!
Lad aldrig os miste
Dit lebende Spor,
Din Naades det lysende Ord!

This work was criticized for unscientific methods, but today it is commonly accepted that he contributed significantly to the preservation of the traditional ballads. Landstad lived with his father Hans Landstad (1771–1838) who was also a minister, first in 1806 to Øksnes, to Vinje in 1811 and to Seljord in 1819. He took a theological degree (cand. theol) in 1827, and worked after that as the resident chaplain in Gausdal for six years.
