    Seems learned man a poet, a philosopher, a historian, a hymn writer, a social critic, and most relevantly, an educator. His educational vision was for a unique school that would serve Danish people of all social standings, especially the farmers.

Et Lidet Barn Sa Lysteligt

Et lidet barn så lysteligt
blev af en jomfru båret,
ej før, ej siden hørtes sligt,
men kun i jubelåret,
i tidens fylde, da Guds Søn
på jord sig fandt en moder skøn,
lod uden synd sig føde,
fornedrede sig til de små,
så de kan ham til broder få,
den Himlens morgenrøde.

Højlovet i al evighed
skal Jesus Kristus være,
og når for ham vi knæle ned,
det er Gud Faders ære,
og når vor lovsang, altid ny,
fra jord sig svinger let i sky
med glade juletoner,
vort fattige halleluja
med salig fryd istemmes da
af engles millioner.

Where autumn embraces the blossoming spring,
Where morning and evening unceasingly dance
In noon’s brightest glance.

Oh, wonderful land,
Where glass does not run full of tear-drops as sand,
