Hela världen fröjdes Herren

Representative Text

1 Hela världen fröjdes Herran
Tidigt och af hjärtans grund!
Kommen ifrån orter fjärran,
I, som stån i hans förbund!
Träden fram med lust och fröjd,
Sjungen Gud i himmelshöjd!

2 Han är den oss hafver skapat
Sig till folk och fosterfår,
Frälsat det, som var förtappadt,
Och är den, som med oss står,
Vill oss ändtligt föra in
Uti himlaglädjen sin.

3 Tacken honom i hans portar,
Lofven honom i hans gård;
Kommen hit från alla orter;
Prisen den om oss har vård;
Ty han är fast god och blid,
Hållar tro i evig tid.

Alterer: Jesper Svedberg

Biship of Skara, Sweden. He was entrusted in creating the first book ever of Swedish hymns, known today as "Swedberg's Book of Hymns, printed in 1694. It was soon declared heretical by some, because it focused too much on good works and not enough on faith. The whole edition was revoked, however, not before some copies made their way to Swedish colonies overseas. A new edition was published containing about 500 hymns, 30 of which bore Swedberg's name as author or translator. Several of these are still in the modern Swedish Book of Hymns. Go to person page >
