Representative Text

1 Ere to the world again we go,
Its pleasures, cares, and idle show,
Thy grace once more, O God, we crave,
From folly and from sin to save.

2 May the great truths we here have heard,
The lessons of Thy holy word,
Dwell in our inmost bosoms deep,
And all our souls from error keep.

3 Oh, may the influence of this day
Long as our memory with us stay,
And as a constant guardian prove,
To guide us to our home above.

Amen.

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 >

Notes

Ere to the world again we go. [Close of Worship.] This popular hymn with the American Unitarians has been traced to George E. Ellis's Psalms & Hymns, Boston, U. S., 1845, where it is given anonymously in 3 stanzas of 4 lines. It is found in most later Unitarian collections. --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology, Appendix, Part II (1907)
