The Morning, Noiseless

Representative Text

1 The morning, noiseless, flings its gold,
and still is evening’s pace;
and silently the earth is rolled
amid the vast of space.

2 Night moves in silence round the pole,
the stars sing on unheard;
their music pierces to the soul,
yet borrows not a word.

3 In quietude the spirit grows,
and deepens hour to hour;
in calm eternal onward flows
its all-redeeming power.

4 Attend, O soul; and hear at length
the spirit’s silent voice;
in stillness labor; wait in strength;
and, confident, rejoice.

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 >
