We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Gif oss än en nådestund

Representative Text

1 Giv oss än en nådestund, o Jesus,
När vi samlas i ditt dyra namn!
Gör oss stilla, stilla för din Ande,
Drag oss alla till din öppna famn!
Duka än, som fordomtid i öknen
För ditt israel, ditt rika bord,
Gif åt hvar och en hvad han behöfver
Af det dyra lifvets ord!

2 Gif oss än en nådestund, tillsammans,
Såsom du ditt folk så gärna ger,
Och låt dina varningar och löften
Tränga djupt i våra hjärtan ner!
Du ju vet, vi kunna inte taga,
Om du Herre, icke gifver det,
O, så gif utöfver hvad vi bedja,
Visa oss din salighet!

3 Gif oss än en nådestund, o Jesus,
Låt ditt frälsningsord oss alla nå!
Hjälp oss du allt bättre taga vara
På de kallelser, vi ännu få!
Gif, ack gif, att särskildt denna stunden
För oss mera uti ordet in!
Se, vi lämna allt i dine händer,
Saken, Herre, är ju din!

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.
