Brorson, Hans Adolph

Hans Adolph Brorson (1694-1764) was a Pietist in the Church of Denmark, Bishop of Ribe, and one of the foremost Danish poets of all time. This translation is based on the Christmas carol by Brorson called “Mit hjerte altid vanker” 1732 (with revisions to verse one by N.F.S. Grundtvig “Forunderligt at sige” 1837 and Oscar Mannerström “Förunderligt och märkligt” 1934).
