The love of God is broad like beach and meadow
The love of God is broad like beach and meadow. Anders Frostenson* (1906-2006), translated by Fred Kaan* (1929-2009), and altered in New Zealand books.
This translation of a Swedish hymn text by Anders Frostenson is found in Songs and Hymns from Sweden (London, 1968). The tune printed there, GUDS KARLECK, is by Lars Ake Lundberg (1968). The hymn is known in New Zealand as ‘The love of God is broad like beach and mountain’ from its publication in the New Zealand supplement to WOV, where the text is adapted and the melody given in an arrangement by the New Zealand musician Guy Elwyn Jansen (1935).
