I have been humming and meditating on this hymn for the last several weeks. It has long been one of my favorites. It was written by Karolina Sandell-Berg in 1858. As is the case with many hymns, it was written after the author had experienced a personal tragedy in her life. She had been on a boat with her father when he fell overboard and drowned. This hymn was an expression of her faith and confidence in the aftermath of that event. Here are the first three stanzas.
