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.

Vi tro og trøste paa een Gud

Representative Text

1 Vi tro og trøste paa ein Gud,
Himmelens og Jordens Skaber,
Til sine Børn han tog os ud,
Vor i Kristus kjære Fader.
Han opholder os, og glæder,
Giver alle Kost og Klæder,
Liv og Sjæl vil han bevare,
Værge os for Nød og Fare;
Han sørger for os, holder, Vagt,
For han har alting i sin Magt.

2 Vi ogsaa tro paa Jesus Krist,
Guds enbaarne Søn, vor Herre,
Sand Gud med Faderen forvist,
Eet med ham i Magt og Ære,
Af den Helligaand undfangen,
Af en Jomfru ren fremgangen,
Pint, korsfæstet, død, begraven,
Nedfor opstod tredje Dagen,
Op til Gud Faders høire for,
Gjenkomme skal til Dom paa Jord.

3 Vi tro og paa den Helligaand,
Gud med Faderen og Sønnen,
Han er de Banges Trøstermand,
Pryder dem med Gaver skjønne,
Og forsamler Kristenheden
I een Tro, eet Sind herneden;
Her as bli'r al Synd tilgivet;
Kjødet skal opstaa til Livet;
Os efter Døden er bered
Et saligt Liv i Evighed.
