Extra Information Like Aftonbön this psalm was submitted to the competition sponsored by Suomen Lähetysseura. It has also always been sung by mixed choirs although not intended for that ensemble, due to 1st publication in an anonymous mixed chorus arrangement, transposed from the original (to F major in this case).
