Representative Text

1 Eternal Lord! from land to land
Shall echo Thine all-glorious name!
Till kingdoms bow at Thy command
And every lip Thy praise proclaim.

2 Exalted high, on every shore,
The banner of the cross, unfurled,
Shall summon thousands to adore
The Savior of a ransomed world.

3 Triumphant over every foe,
Their ransomed numbers shall move on,
To that blest world where sin or woe
Shall never mingle with their song.

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 >
