1 Praise to Him by whose kind favor
Heav'nly truth has reached our ears;
May its sweet reviving savor
Fill our hearts and calm our fears.

2 Truth! how sacred is the treasure!
Teach us, Lord, its worth to know;
Vain the hope, and short the pleasure
Which from other sources flow.

3 What of truth we have been hearing,
Fix, O Lord, in ev'ry heart;
In the day of thy appearing
May we share thy people's part.

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 >
