Some of the reasons for differences in the versions is due to my having to write the lyrics to the music from memory of the melody being sung in the worship service. This led to some small alterations in the way the song needed to be sung. I revised it using a track on a CD issued by Vegard Schow in collaboration with various worship teams in Bergen which was slightly different in emphasis and style from the one preferred by Kjersti herself.

For my part, I am a lyricist, not a musician so I wish to share the original lyrics, and the meanings contained in them.
