Little Hands

Representative Text

1 Open, shut them; open, shut them;
Give a little clap;
Open, shut them; open, shut them;
Lay them in your lap.

2 Creep them, creep them, slowly upward
Past your chin and cheek;
Open wide your shining eyes and
Through your fingers peek.

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 >
