1 Praise God for wheat all white and sweet
Of which to make our bread;
Praise God for yellow corn with which
His waiting world is fed.
Praise God for fish and flesh and fowl
He gave to men for food,
Praise God for every creature which
He made and called it good.
2 Praise God for winter's stores of ice,
Praise God for summer's heat;
Praise God for fruit trees, bearing seed,
"To you it is for meat."
Praise God for all the bounty
By which the world is fed.
Praise God, ye children all, to whom
He gives your daily bread.
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 >
