You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of April 20, we are $4,600 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today and join dozens of other supporters in making this important renovation possible!

Dejlig er jorden

Language: Danish (Dansk)

Dejlig er jorden,
prægtig er Guds himmel,
skøn er sjælenes pilgrimsgang!
Gennem de fagre
riger på jorden
gå vi til paradis med sang!

Tider skal komme,
tider skal henrulle,
slægt skal følge slægters gang;
aldrig forstummer
tonen fra himlen
i sjælens glade pilgrimssang.

Englene sang den
først for markens hyrder,
skønt fra sjæl til sjæl det lød:
Fred over jorden!
Menneske, fryd dig,
os er i dag en frelser fød!
