Jerusalem, Jerusalem

Author: Lina Sandell Hymnal: Hymnal and Order of Service #354 (1901) Meter: 8.6.8.6 D Hymnal Title: Hymnal and Order of Service Lyrics: 1 Jerusalem, Jerusalem, Thou city ever blest, Within thy portals first I find My safety, peace, and rest. Here dangers always threaten me, My days in strife are spent, And labor, sorrow, worry, grief, I find at best their strength. 2 No wonder, then, that more and more My longings do increase, Jerusalem, Jerusalem, For thee, and never cease. My lineage, too, to thee I trace, A stranger in the earth, In thee my burgher-ship I have, In thee I have my birth. 3 No wonder, then, that I do long O blessed home, for thee, Where finally I shall have rest, From sin and sorrow free; Where tears and weeping are no more, Nor death, nor pain, nor night, For former things are passed away In yonder home of light. 4 Now all for me has lost its charm Which here so much is praised, Since on the cross, through faith, I saw My Saviour, Jesus, raised. My goal is fixed, one thing I ask, Whate’er the cost may be, Jerusalem, Jerusalem, Soon to arrive in thee. Amen. Topics: Eternity Languages: English Tune Title: JERUSALEM

Here dangers always threaten me, My days in strife are spent, And labor, sorrow, worry, grief, That is at best their strength. 2 No wonder, then, that more and more My longings do increase, Jerusalem, Jerusalem, For thee, and never cease, My lineage, too, to thee I trace, A stranger in the earth, In thee my burgherhip I have, In thee I have my birth. 3 No wonder, then, that I do long, O blessed home, for thee, Where finally I shall have rest, From sin and sorrow free; Where tears and weeping are no more, Nor death, nor pain, nor night, For former things are passed away In yonder home of light. 4 Now all for me has lost its charm Which here so much is praised, Since on the cross, through faith, I saw My Saviour, Jesus, raised. My goal is fixed, one thing I ask, Whate'er the price may be, Jerusalem, Jerusalem, Soon to arrive in thee. Topics: The Christian Graces; Hope Heavenly Glory

Carolina Sandell-Berg

Person Name: Lina Sandell Hymnal Title: Hymnal and Order of Service Author of "Jerusalem, Jerusalem" in Hymnal and Order of Service See Sandell, Carolina, 1823-1903

Carolina Sandell

1823 - 1903 Person Name: Karolina W. Sandell-Berg Hymnal Title: The Cyber Hymnal Author of "Jerusalem, Jerusalem" in The Cyber Hymnal Caroline W. Sandell Berg (b. Froderyd, Sweden, 1832; d. Stockholm, Sweden, 1903), is better known as Lina Sandell, the "Fanny Crosby of Sweden." "Lina" Wilhelmina Sandell Berg was the daughter of a Lutheran pastor to whom she was very close; she wrote hymns partly to cope with the fact that she witnessed his tragic death by drowning. Many of her 650 hymns were used in the revival services of Carl O. Rosenius, and a number of them gained popularity particularly because of the musical settings written by gospel singer Oskar Ahnfelt. Jenny Lind, the famous Swedish soprano, underwrote the cost of publishing a collection of Ahnfelt's music, Andeliga Sänger (1850), which consisted mainly of Berg's hymn texts. Bert Polman

A precentor in the Scottish Church in Crown Court, London, Purday sang at the coronation of Queen Victoria. In the publishing field he is known as a strong proponent of better copyright laws to protect the works of authors and publishers. Bert Polman
