Jesus loves the little children, For he said one day

Author: Unknown
Tune: [Jesus loves the little children] (Reinecke)
Published in 15 hymnals

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 >
