Representative Text

1 Vak upp, vak upp, hör på, ack hör ett bud
Ifrån din konung och din Herre Gud!
Han, som dock främst har rätten till ditt hjärta,
Han söker dig – måhända än med smärta!

2 Han söker dig, och du – slår dörren till;
Han klappar än, och du – ej öppna vill;
Men tänk, om så du honom bortgå låter,
Att aldrig, aldrig mer han kommer åter!

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.
