Representative Text

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:
Hail, Mary, pure and lowly maid,
The favored of the Lord.

5 How blest shall be her name
In all the Church on earth!
Through her that wondrous myst'ry came,
The incarnate Savior's birth.

6 Praise Christ, the Virgin's Son,
Whom earth and heav'n adore,
With Father, Spirit, Three in One
Both now and 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 >
