Kongen

Hans Christian Andersen 1805 (Odense) – 1875 (Copenhagen)



*

Et fattigt Barn jeg var, mig Ingen kjendte,
Men i mit Hjerte Digter-Flammen brændte;
Den drev mig modigt frem i Verdens-Vrimlen,
Skjøndt kun jeg eied' Den og Gud i Himlen.

*

Til Danmarks Konge ledte de min Fod,
Jeg følte kun, jeg hos en Fader stod,
Der gav mit Hjerte Mod, min Tanke Vinger. -
Og Faderhjertet trygt min Sang jeg bringer;
Jeg seer ei Thronen, hvor jeg knæler ned,
Men i Dit Øie: Fader-Kjærlighed.
