Hymn 289 – Wide is, o Lord, your love, like beach and meadow
Lyrics: Anders Frostenson (1906–2006)
Music: Lars Åke Lundberg (1935–)

Wide is, o Lord, your love, like beach and meadow,
free as the wind, eternally a home.
You leave us free to seek or to reject you,
you give us room to answer “yes” or “no”.

Wide is, o Lord, your love, like beach and meadow,
free as the wind, eternally a home.

We long for freedom where our truest being
is given hope and courage to unfold.
We seek in freedom space and scope for dreaming
and look for ground where trees and plants may grow.

Wide is, o Lord, your love, like beach and meadow,
free as the wind, eternally a home.

Hymn 200 – Go seek, my heart, the joys of life
Lyrics: Paul Gerhardt (1607–1676)
Translation: Tr. Frank 
Music: Nathan Söderblom (1866–1931)

Go seek, my heart, the joys of life,
this lovely summertime so rife,
in all the gifts God gave you.
Look at the gardens, colourful displayed,
see how, for you and me, they've made
an overwhelming view.

The trees with leaves are crowned again,
the earth shall deck its dust with green,
a robe of grass and flowers;
the tulip red, the lily white,
are dressed in satin garments bright,
more than King Solomon's powers.

The lark takes wing into the air,
the dove flies out of its own lair,
and heads into the greenness.
So talented, the nightingale
enthralls and fills both hill and dale
with song of wondrous sweetness.
