1 Vi med Forundring daglig maa
Til Jesu Kjendskab træde,
Og i hans Huses Forgaard staa
Med stor Forundrings Glæde.
Fra Krybben nu til Templet hjem
Paa Moders Hænder bæres frem
Den Guds velsigned' Spæde.

2 Og der modtages han af To,
Som efter ham har stundet,
Der kjendes han af Annas Tro,
Som var i Guds Ord grundet,
Og Simeon, den Olding prud,
Han glæder sig og takker gud,
Han har sin Frelser fundet.

3 Men Josef og Maria kan
Det Under aldrig glemme,
Som de om Barnets Guddoms Stand
Nu mer og mer fornemme.
Selv Satan ikke denne rod,
Den Guddoms kraft og Naade-Flod,
Oprykke kan og dæmme.

4 Med Simeon vi ønske vil
Al Naade, Held og Lykke:
Bliv stærk, du lille Kjæmpe, til
Alt Ondt at undertrykke1
Ifør dig Kraft, bliv stor og stærk
I Aanden til dit Frelser-Verk,
Du Sjælens dyre Smykke!

5 Og er du dem til Snublesten,
Som sig paa dig vil støde,
At mange falde sig til Meen
Og for sin Bantro bOde,
Saa reis dem op, som paa dig tro,
Dem, Herre Jesus, vil du jo
Med al din Naade møde!

6 Men, o Maria! skal da vel,
Du bedste Jordens Kvinde,
Et Sverd sig trænge i din Sjæl,
Og dine Taarer rinde?
Det saar saa gaa, som Gud han vil,
Hans Agt er god, vær du kun stil,
Han skal dit Saar forbinde.

7 Gid vi med Bønnen Dag og Nat,
Med Længsels Graad og Klage
Som Anna tage Jesus sat
I all vort Levnets Dage,
At han os saa af al vor Nød
Fra Sorg og Strid og Synd og Død
Vil til sin Glæde tage!

Thomas Hansen Kingo (15 December 1634 – 14 October 1703 Odense) was a Danish bishop, poet and hymn-writer born at Slangerup, near Copenhagen. His work marked the high point of Danish baroque poetry. He belonged to a rather poor family partly of Scottish origin and was educated a clergyman. In his youth, Kingo wrote a series of poems picturing humorous scenes in village life and a pastoral love poem, Chrysillis. He studied theology at the University of Copenhagen, graduating in 1654, and for some time acted as private tutor. In 1661 he was appointed vicar to the pastor at Kirke Helsinge, and in 1668 he was ordained a minister at his native town, where his poetic activity began.
