Kommer du ej snart?

Representative Text

1 Herre, fördölj ej ditt ansikte för mig,
Trösta mig åter, välsigna mig, hör mig!
O, du min trofaste, dyre förlossare,
Kommer du ej snart? Kommer du ej snart?
Kommer du ej snart? Kommer du ej snart?

2 Ännu ej hemma hos dig är jag vorden,
Är blott en gäst och en främling på jorden.
O, du min trofaste, dyre förlossare,
Kommer du ej snart? Kommer du ej snart?
Kommer du ej snart? Kommer du ej snart?

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.
