Nicolaj Frederik Severin Grundtvig

(1783 - 1872 / Denmark)

Christi Kirke! lydt du kvæde


Christi Kirke! lydt du kvæde,
Som en Barne-Moder prud!
Sagte nynne du med Glæde,
Som den unge Brud!
Stærk og gammel, ung og viis,
Det er du til Herrens Priis:
Evig Drot, som Engle hylde,
Født i Tidens Fylde!


dig berømme vi i Støvet,
Helgene i Hvilen sød,
Som med Glands fuldendte Løbet,
Prise end dit Skiød;
Saa du med Vorherre boer
Høit i Himmel, lavt paa Jord,
Knæler som den Mindstes Lige,
Krones i Guds Rige!


Som Maria Jomfru-Moder,
Hjertereen som prøvet Guld,
Føder Aand du unge Poder,
Christne, Kuld paa Kuld!
Fra det Høie Engle-Bud
Kalder dig din Herres Brud,
Alt og favner du med Ordet
Ham ved Naade-Bordet!


Under alle Himmel-Egne
Hvad du beder om, du faaer!
Hvad du lover paa hans Vegne
Som Hans Throne staaer!
Han ved dig forlader Synd,
Taler Naadens Ord med Fynd,
Lyser Fred og skaber Glæde,
Med sin Aand tilstæde!

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Go from me, summer friends, and tarry not:
I am no summer friend, but wintry cold,
A silly sheep benighted from the fold,
A sluggard with a thorn-choked garden plot.
