Dear friends, we are turning 20 next year! Two years ago, 0.01% of all visitors made a donation. Last year, it was 0.02%. To all who have donated - a very warm thank you! Your generosity inspires me every day to keep going. Unfortunately, the current situation is not sustainable. Even if only 0.5% of visitors could make a donation, we could continue indefinitely - so please donate today and help keep this resource freely-available to all.    ---Emily Ezust, Founder

Et helligt Liv, en salig Død

Language: Danish (Dansk)

Et helligt Liv, en salig Død
hinanden kærlig møde,
som Julemorgen sagte, sød
en liflig Aftenrøde;
de to kan aldrig skilles ad,
den Helligaand gør ingen glad,
som ej vil helliggøres.

At have stridt den gode strid
og vandret ufortrøden
paa Livets Vej til Endens Tid,
kun det er sødt i Døden;
vel den, som Herren tro har tjænt,
Guds Vilje gjort, sit Løb fuldendt,
i fred han skal henfare.

O Simeon, du Hjærtens-Mand,
Det var din Lod og Lykke!
Du rolig stod paa Gravens Rand
i Herrens Vingers Skygge;
i Dødens Port med snehvidt Haar
du sang om Evighedens Vaar,
som Fugl i Frydens Lunde.

Den Gang du Jesus tog i Favn,
da aabned sig tillige
for Øje dit i Jesu Navn
hans søde Himmerige;
du sang: ”Nu farer jeg i Fred,
ti, Himlens Gud! din Salighed
mig svæver alt for Øje.”

Saa Freden maa i allen Stund
med Jesus favnetages,
og til det sker, af Hjærtens Grund
der sukkes maa og klages;
ti aldrig finder Sjælen Ro,
før Hjærtet med den sande Tro
sin Frelsermand omfavner.

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.
