Representative Text

1 Tillkomme ditt rike, o Herre, vår Gud,
Tillkomme ditt rike på jorden!
Sänd ut dina vittnen med frälsningens bud,
Sänd ut dem till södern och norden
Att kalla och bjuda all världen!
Att kalla och bjuda all världen!

2 Du lofvat i ordet en vildmarkens vår,
Då öknen skall stå lik en lilja.
Vi bida därefter hvart gryende är,
Och är det din nådiga vilja,
Snart komme den tiden, o Jesus!
Snart komme den tiden, o Jesus1

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.
