I can read Swedish--poorly, but well enough to know that the <br/>s have 
no semantic meaning. Typographic linebreaks within poetic lines are 
generally quite uncommon and would only serve to reduce the salience of 
poetic lines.

The source markup had numerous evident errors, particularly in Psalms, 
so I interpreted these <br/>s as among them. If genuinely desired, it 
wouldn't be difficult to put them back.
