Udi din Haand, o Fader blid

Full Text

1 Udi din Haand, o Fader blid
Jeg lægger nu til evig Tid
Min arme Shæl, og hvad jeg har,
Tag du det alt i dit Forvar!

2 Min Sjæl og Liv dit Eie er,
Det veed du selv, o Herre kjær,
Hvad dit er, hegner du omkring,
Thi frygter jeg for ingen ting.

3 I dig er jeg af Hjertet glad,
Du er min Trøst dit Ord min Mad,
Til Hjælp i al min Usseldom
Du kommer, som du altid kom.

4 Det er min Tro, o Fader blid,
Hjælp, at jeg bli'r derved al Tid,
Ifra dit Barn du aldrig vig,
At jeg maa arve Himmerig!

It was soon declared heretical by some, because it focused too much on good works and not enough on faith. The whole edition was revoked, however, not before some copies made their way to Swedish colonies overseas. A new edition was published containing about 500 hymns, 30 of which bore Swedberg's name as author or translator. Several of these are still in the modern Swedish Book of Hymns. Go to person page >
