Representative Text

1 Hear us, heavenly Father,
Thou whose gentle care
Tends the young and feeble,
Hear our simple prayer.
Hear our prayer, Father, hear.

2 Pardon our offenses;
Guard us from all ill;
Make us, like true children,
Love Thy holy will.
Hear our prayer, Father, hear.

3 Let not sin beguile us
From Thy paths to stray;
But with Thy great mercy
Keep us night and day.
Hear our prayer, Father, hear.

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 >
