[1] This is my commandment, that you love one another
that your joy may be full.

This is my commandment, that you trust one another...

This is my commandment, that you serve one another...

This is my commandment, that you lay down your lives...

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 >
