Pris Gud, all godhets källa vid

Representative Text

1 Pris Gud, all godhets källa vid,
I himmel och på jord!
O stämmen in till evig tid:
Pris Gud för nådens ord!

2 Du heliga treenighet,
Ack, snart på bättre vis
Från evighet till evighet
Jag sjunga skall dit pris.

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.
