Zions vægter hæver Røsten

Representative Text

1 Zions Vægter hæver Røsten:
Vaagn op, der blinker Lyn i Østen,
Vaagn op, Guds Stad, Jerusalem!
Midnats Mulm dig ruger over,
Men Herrens Time slaar,– hvo sover?
I klage Jomfruer, herfrem!
Se, Herren kommer ned,
Stat op, tag Lampen med!
Lad den brænde!
Paa Jesu Bud
Stat op, gak ud!
Han fører dig hjem til din Gud.

2 Zion Vægter-Raabet hører,
En himmelsk Glæde Hjertet rører,
Hun vaagner og staar freidig op.
Herren kommer stor og prægtig,
Af Naade stærk, af Sandhed mægtig;
Nu rinder hendes Stjerne op!
Ak, kom, du Krone skjøn,
Min Jesus, du Guds Søn!
Hosianna!
Vi følge med!
Du har bered
En Bolig os i Evighed!

3 Ære være dig, du Høie!
Ak Gud, hvad ser, hvad ser mit Øie!
Rundt om din Throne Engle-Rad!
Lyset er saa klart derinde,
Og hver din Ven vi der gjenfinde
Saa engleren og engleglad!
Hvad intet Øie saa,
Hvad aldrig Tanker naa,
Der vi skue!
Nu, Jord Farvel!
Stig høit, min Sjæl,
Følg Jesus ind til Glædens Væld!

Magnus Brostrup Landstad (born 7 October 1802 in Måsøy, Norway and died 8 October 1880 in Kristiania) was a Norwegian minister, psalmist and poet who published the first collection of authentic Norwegian traditional ballads in 1853.

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.
