You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of April 20, we are $4,600 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today and join dozens of other supporters in making this important renovation possible!

Jag

Language: Swedish (Svenska)

Jag gråter blodiga tårar,
de falla för synder och sorg,
för allt som sårat, som sårar
mitt hjärtas sargade borg.

På ingen jag skyller mitt öde;
jag följer min lefnads ström
och rusar med eget flöde
från boja, stängsel och töm.

Jag utan beräkning vänder
till baka till jordens famn
och skrattar vid afgudabränder
åt ära, rykte och namn.
