Representative Text

1 Scorn not the slightest word or deed,
Nor deem it void of power;
There’s fruit in each wind-wafted seed
That waits its natal hour.

Refrain:
Work on, work on,
Though small thy act may be,
Its power for good in time to come
Thy God alone can see.

2 A whispered word may touch the heart,
And call it back to life:
A look of love bid sin depart,
And still unholy strife. [Refrain]

3 No act falls fruitless; none can tell
How vast its power may be,
Nor what results infolded dwell
Within it silently. [Refrain]

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 >
