Jesus, lifvets källa

Representative Text

1 Jesus, lifvets källa,
Kom att tillfredsställa
Själens törst och gif
Lif utaf ditt lif!

2 Stilla du min längtan,
Hjärtats djupa trängtan,
Under kamp och strid,
Efter ostörd frid!

3 Värdes själf mig rena,
Du det kann allena;
I din hälsoflod
Gör min vilja god!

4 Kom, när morgon bräcker,
Kom, när sol sig släcker,
Kom med hopp och ljus
Midt i stormens brus!

5 Kom, du lifvets källa,
Låt din fridsvåg välla
Mäktigt öfver mig:
Se, jag bidar dig!

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.
