Under dine vingers skygge

Language: Danish

Under dine vingers skygge
Herre, lad mig bo og bygge,
til du vil hjemkalde mig,
til mit øje træt sig lukker,
til i dødens stund jeg sukker:
Herre, tag min ånd til dig!

Under dine vingers skygge,
der, kun der er livets lykke
åndens barnehjem på jord,
hvor, hvad vi af Paradiset
har ved Adams fald forliset
atter spirer frem og gror.


Under dine vingers skygge
som i barndomshjemmet trygge
vandrer vi, trods storm og slud
fries vi end ej for fare,
dog for mørkets magt og snare
du bevarer os, vor Gud.

Under din vingers skygge
lad kun korsets bryde trykke,
klage lyde på vor gang!
Fader, dine visdoms hænder
korts til sejrens palme vender,
klageråb til jubelsang!


Under din vingers skygge
lad mig hjertets tempel smykke
med din tro, din kærlighed,
lys og renhed, kraft og varme,
at til sidst i dine arme
jeg må slumre ind i fred!



Authorship

Musical settings (art songs, Lieder, mélodies, (etc.), choral pieces, and other vocal works set to this text), listed by composer (not necessarily exhaustive)

Text added to the website between May 1995 and September 2003.

Notes about what "text verified" means can be found here.

Gentle Reminder
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees, the Archive was supported financially last year by fewer than 0.02% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.

I also have a wishlist at Amazon.ca.
