1 O thou who hearest prayer,
Attend our humble cry,
And let thy servants share
Thy blessing from on high
We plead the promise of thy word,
Grant us thy Holy Spirit, Lord!

2 If earthly parents hear
Their children when they cry,
If they with love sincere
Their children's wants supply,
Much more wilt thou thy love display,
And answer when thy children pray.

3 Our heavenly Father, thou,
We, children of thy grace,
O let thy Spirit now
Descend and fill the place,
That all may feel the heavenly flame,
And all unite to praise thy name.

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 >
