Representative Text

1 Heed not the tempter's siren voice,
A deep with dangers rife;
Mortal, thou hast a nobler choice
Life, life, eternal life.

2 O, shun the world's bewitching snare,
Its fever, and its strife;
Mortal, thou hast a nobler share
Life, life, eternal life.

3 Like Abram hast thou faith to bear
The sacrificial knife?
Then with the faithful thou shalt share
Life, life, eternal life.

4 For love of God canst thou lay down
Thy life 'mid hottest strife?
Then thou hast won a starry crown
Life, life, eternal life.

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 >
