Bernhardt Severin Ingemann; (1789 to 1862) , a Danish teacher, poet, and novelist, was born on the island of Falster, Denmark, May 28, 1789.
He was a Professor of the Danish Language and Literature at the Academy of SorÃ¶, Zealand, Denmark, from 1822 till his death, in 1862. The only hymn by him in common use is that found in this volume; but it possesses more than ordinary merit, and is widely known in its English dress. It brings out very forcibly the brotherhood of man and the expectation of the Christian believer. Seven of his hymns have been translated into English. His collected works were published in thirty-four volumes in 1851.
