A friend on RevGalBlogPals posted the words to this hymn which you can hear performed in Norwegian…
O Blessed saints, now take your rest;
A Thousand times shall you be blest
For keeping faith firm unto death
And scorning worldly trust.
For now you live at home with God
And harvest seeds once cast abroad
In tears and sighs, See with new eyes
The pattern in the seed.
-Den Store Hvide Flok (trans. Gracia Grindal)
Here’s to you Mike, seeing with new eyes…
Rest in peace and rise in glory!
