Donald Bergagård (born 13 February 1936 in Öckerö) is a Swedish singer, accordionist and evangelist. He was one of the founders of Maran Ata in Oslo, where he was also a pastor from 2001 to 2004[1] Later that year, he moved to the United States.

Bergagård wrote the Swedish text to the song där rosor aldrig dör|Till en stad jag är på vandring, dit där rosor aldrig dör. The tune was written by Jack & Jim Elsie, under the original title I am going to a city, where the roses never fade.

In March 1963, Bergagård led a Maran Ata meeting in Jönköping where a 13-year-old boy with diabetes was prayed for. His parents withdrew his insulin shots, with the result that the boy died a week later.[2][3]
