1 Praise we the Lord this day,
This day so long foretold,
Whose promise shone with cheering ray
On waiting saints of old.

2 The prophet gave the sign
For faithful folk to read;
A virgin, born of David's line
Shall bear the promised Seed.

3 Ask not how this should be,
But worship and adore
Like her whom God's own majesty
Came down to shadow o'er.

4 She meekly bowed her head
To hear the gracious word,
Mary, the pure and lowly maid,
The favored of the Lord.

5 Blessed shall be her name
In all the Church on earth
Through whom that wondrous mercy came,
The incarnate Savior's birth.

6 O Christ, the Virgin's Son,
We praise you and adore,
You are with God the Father One
And Spirit evermore.

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 >
