Ack Herre Jesus, var oss nära

Representative Text

1 Ack Herre Jesus, var oss nära,
Då i ditt namn vi samlas än!
Kom du att undervisa, luara,
Slå ned, men trösta ock igen!
Låt Anden själf på färden vara
Att ordet för oss uppenbara!

2 De hårda hälleberg låt brista,
Gör lagens hela fordran känd,
Men må därjämte ock en gnista
Af trones helga eld bli tänd1
Låt ordet om din död och smärta
Få bli till lifs för något hjärta!

3 Och där din Ande lif fått verka,
O, stadfäst där din nåd alltmer!
De trötta knän du värdes stärka,
Att de ej åter digna ner,
Och du, som hjälp af höjden sänder,
O, vederkvick de matta händer!

4 Ja, tala, käre Herre, tala
Och lär oss alla lyssna till!
Bestraffa, trösta och hugsvala,
Du, som ju allas frälsning vill!
Låt ock den stund, du nu vill gifva,
En salighetens stund oss blifva!

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.
