Lina Sandell (full name: Karolina Wilhelmina Sandell-Berg), (born 3 October 1832 in Fröderyd, Sweden, dead 27 July 1903 in Stockholm, Sweden) was a Swedish writer of Christian songs. She was the daughter of a Lutheran minister. She grew up in the rectory at Fröderyd. When she was 26 years old she went with her father, Jonas Sandell, on a boat trip across lake of Vättern. Her father fell overboard and drowned in her presence. This incident inspired many of her songs.
