Nu vågne alle Guds fugle små

Language: Danish

Nu vågne alle Guds fugle små,
de flyve fra reden og sjunge. 
De prise Vorherre, så godt de formå:
De takke for livet og lyset med fløjtende tunge. 

Nu kvidrer svalen på kirketag,
og spurven ved menneskers huse. 
De synge: God morgen! De synge: God dag! 
De synge: Guds fred! Gud ske lov! Og i luften hensuse. 

Småfuglens sang Vorherre forstår,
han kender hver sjæl i sit rige. 
De fattiges lovsang han ikke forsmår,
han ser, hvad de målløse skabninger alle vil sige. 

Os ser du også, du kære Gud! 
du hører vor røst i din himmel. 
Når fuglene flagre af rederne ud,
du hører småbørnenes pris i din jublende vrimmel.



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.
