1 All hail, bright morning star!
The dayspring from afar;
Hail the long expected morn!
Hail the joy of earth and Heav’n!
Unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is giv’n!

Unto us, unto us, unto us a Son is giv’n,
Unto us, unto us a Son is giv’n!

2 Veiled in a form of clay,
Whom angel hosts obey,
God appears on earth to dwell,
Him the hosts of Satan dread;
Christ will save our souls from hell,
He shall bruise the serpent’s head! [Refrain]

3 Hail, Christ is God alone!
For sin He doth atone!
Savior of the human race,
Thee let all our powers confess;
Own Thy power, extol Thy grace,
Shout the Lord our righteousness! [Refrain]

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
