Kärleken är was Sweden's entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1998 in Birmingham, performed by Jill Johnson. As of 2015, it is the last Swedish entry to be sung in Swedish.

Although lyricist Ingela "Pling" Forsman did not comment on the background of the song when it won Melodifestivalen and competed at Eurovision, she has since confirmed that the lyrics indeed were inspired by the aftermath of the death of Diana, Princess of Wales in a car accident in France in 1997.

In the final, it performed in nineteenth position, following The Netherlands and preceding Belgium. At the close of voting, it finished in tenth place with 53 points.

Lyrics

Här, i den stilla gryningen
Kan jag känna allting andas igen
De tunga molnen drev iväg med vindarna
Inga tårar ifrån himlen blir till regn

(Vi hör orden i en sång)
Som finns kvar här i våra hjärtan
(Vi i lugnet efter storm)

En ängel flög förbi mot himmelen så fri
Men hon lämnade sitt leende på vår jord
Som en sol som värmer oss, som en himmels stjärnebloss
Så vi kan betrakta livets skeende med en tro
Kärleken är

Och när natten sänker sig
Är vi trygga i varandras andetag
(En vind som smyger sig intill)
Bär en doft utav vilda rosor

En ängel flög förbi mot himmelen så fri
Men hon lämnade sitt leende på vår jord
Som en sol som värmer oss, som en himmels stjärnebloss
Så vi kan betrakta livets skeende med en tro
Kärleken är

Oh… oh… oh…

En ängel flög förbi mot himmelen så fri
Men hon lämnade sitt leende på vår jord
Som en sol som värmer oss, som en himmels stjärnebloss
Så vi kan betrakta livets skeende med en tro
Att kärleken är

Here, in the still dawn
I can feel everything breathe again
The heavy clouds drifted away with the winds
No tears from the sky turns into rain

(We hear the words from a song)
Which is still in our hearts
(We in calm after the storm)

An angel passed, to heaven so free
But she left her smile on our Earth
Like a sun which makes us warm, like a heaven’s starlight
So that we can observe life’s process with a belief
Love is

Here, and where the night is approaching
We’re safe in each other’s breaths
(A wind, which nestles against)
Carries a smell of wild rose

An angel passed to heaven so free
But she left her smile on our Earth
Like a sun which makes us warm, like a heaven’s starlight
So that we can observe life’s process with a belief
Love is

Oh… oh… oh…

An angel passed to heaven so free
But she left her smile on our Earth
Like a sun which makes us warm, like a heaven’s starlight
So that we can observe life’s process with a belief
That love is
