Swedish Poet, Composer, Educator and Statesman

— 1817 - 1901 —

[In Swedish and English, English version follows]:
Oh God, who rulest fate of nations,
Almighty thou in every land;
Who holdest life and death's privations.
Within the hollow of thy hand,
Whatever punishment thou wieldest
For Svea's sin of yore ?gainst thee,
Endure she will, if thou but shieldest
Her immemorial liberty.
