Representative Text

1 Den Port er snever, trang den Sti,
Som til Guds Rige bær',
Dog er der endnu Rum for dig,
For dig, ihvo du er,
For dig, ihvo du er.

2 Se, Himlen er ei endnu fuld,
End er der Rum for dig.
I Jesu Navn, for Jesu Skyld
Dens Porte aabne sig,
Dens Porte aabne sig.

3 Skjønt Tusind Gange Tusind staa
I hvide Klæder der,
Af Gud der dog til dig ogsaa
Et Rum bevaret er,
Et Rum bevaret er.

4 I Jesu Hjerte er der Rum,
I Himlen ligervis,
Saa lyder Evangelium
Gud være evig Pris!
Gud være evig Pris!

5 Gud være Pris, som endog mig
Et evigt saligt Hjem
Har lovet og beredt hos sig
I sit Jerusalem!
I sig Jerusalem!

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.
