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.

Representative Text

1 Vaagn op, min Sjæl! thi Stunden er
Af Søvne op at stande,
Og Salighedens Tid er nær
At glæde vore Lande.
Vor Sørge-Nat
Er gangen plat,
Vi skal nu snarlig finde,
Fra Davids Stol
Retvisheds Sol,
Vor Jesus, at oprinde.

2 Kast derfor af din Synde-Ham,
Og Mørkets stygge Klæde,
At Jesus, Guds uskyldig Lam,
I dig kan have Glæde!
Gak frem og staa
Med Vaaden paa,
Som Lysets Barn kan sømme;
Lad Utugt gaa
Af Hjertets Vraa,
Hold Kiv og Had i Tømme!

3 Ifør mig, Gud, og klæd mig saa,
At hver kan se og kjende,
Jeg har min Jesus ganske paa
Indtil mit Levnets Ende!
Bort Kjøds Begjær!
Min Jesus er
Udi mit Kjød i Vente;
Gid jeg ham ind
I Sjæl og Sind
Med Bøn og Bod kan hente!
