1 To God, the universal King,
Be sacred ev'ry grateful choir:
In endless hymns his praises sing,
Which endless bounty can inspire.

2 Hail! hail! reviv'd, reviving spring,
Fair type of heav'n's eternal year,
While nature's works thy praises sing,
Lo! gratitude salutes thee here.

3 Swell, gently swell, the solemn song!
Now pour the bounding notes along,
Teach choirs below, to choirs above
To echo back the solemn lay;
And as they praise unbounded love,
To join in bounty's holy-day.

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 >
