Little children, can you tell
Who has kept us safe and well
Through the watches of the night,
Till the morning light?
Yes, it is our God doth keep,
Little children while they sleep,
He has kept us from all harm,
By His pow'rful arm.
Come then, let us thankful be,
For His mercies large and free!
Evry morning let us raise,
High our song of praise.
Praise Him for these happy hours,
Praise Him for our varied pow'rs,
Praise Him ev'ry heart and voice,
While we all rejoice.
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 >
