Ó, Terjeszd Ki, Jézusom, Oltalmazó Szárnyad

Representative Text

1 Ó, terjeszd ki, Jézusom,
oltalmazó szárnyad,
És csitíts el szívemben
bút, örömöt, vágyat!
Légy mindenem, légy fényem,
sötéten jő az éj,
Nagy irgalmadból élnem
szüntelen Te segélj!

2 Ó, mosson meg egészen
az értem kifolyt vér!
Új lélekért könyörgök,
újult akaratért.
Kicsik, nagyok mind kérünk:
őrködj vigyázva ránk!
Békességedbe térünk:
Te áldd meg éjszakánk!

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.

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
