Representative Text

1 My feet are so weary with the march
Over the steep hillside;
O city of God! I fain would see
Thy peaceful water glide.
O city of God! I fain would see
Thy peaceful waters glide.

2 My hands are so weary toiling on
For perishable meat;
O city of God! I fain would reach
Thy glorious mercy-seat!
O city of God! I fain would reach
Thy glorious mercy-seat!

3 Have patience, poor heart, His feet were torn,
His hands were weary too;
His garments were stained and travel-worn,
His head wet with the dew.
His garments were stained and travel-worn,

4 So love thou the path thy Saviour trod,
And patient wait thy rest;
The city of God thou soon shalt see,
Home of the loved and blest.
The city of God thou soon shalt see,
Home of the loved and blest.

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 >
