I djupet av mitt hjärta


I djupet av mitt hjärta, en stad jag högt åtrår:

Jersualem, det sälla hem.

Där all min nöd och smärta för alltid avsked får.

I djupet av mitt hjärta den staden jag åtrår.


Men på de vida vatten var finner jag dock väg?

Bland blinda skär Var vägen är.

I storm och mörka natten till hemmet Herre, säg.

Men på de vida vatten var finner jag dock väg?


Jo, du mig visar vägen, ty själv du vägen är.

När du är med, jag ser min led.

Fast hjälplös och förlägen, Dig håller jag mig när.

Och du som själv är vägen, mig visar vägen där.


Lyrics: H.A. Brorson 1765

Melody: Trad from Oviken, Sweden

Arrangement: Anders Nyberg


In 1978 Fjedur performed in Ovikens new church as a part of "Musik vid Storsjön". After the concert we met a local fiddler who shared this wonderful melody with us. Some years later, with the song, and particularly the first dramatic phrase, still in vivid memory I came across the text of the old hymn "I djupet av mitt hjärta" and noticed how beautifully the Oviken melody matched the lyrics. If you put them together they fit perfectly not only in meter and sentiment but also with the words "I djupet" - In the depth, landing on the lowest note and the word "högt" - high, on the highest note! I arranged it and a very old new song was born.

When I hear it I cannot help but thinking of it as a theme-song for the Jerusalem-travellers from Nås in Dalarna, memorialized by Selma Lagerlöf in her novel Jerusalem, and later in a movie by Billie August.
