The work was composed in 1908 for the male choir Bel Canto and its conductor Vilhelm Poulsen. Together with Nielsen's melody for Paaskeblomst, en Draabe stærk, it was later re-used in a cantata arranged by Valdemar Rørdam for the inauguration of the 'radium station' (radiotherapy clinic) in Copenhagen on 4 March 1931.
