1 Sweet Savior, once again this year
Brings to the happy earth
The season held forever dear
On which we hail Thy birth!

2 We think of Thee as once a child
Who sought a mother’s face,
An infant innocent and mild,
Who grew in years and grace.

3 Our wills and tempers, Lord, control,
And give us eyes to see,
The tender heart, and loving soul,
The mind that was in Thee.

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 >
