1. We are but young yet we may sing
The praises of our heav'nly King;
He made the earth, the sea, the sky,
And all the starry hosts on high.

2. We are but young we need a guide,
Jesus, in thee we would confide;
O lead us in the path of truth,
Protect and bless us helpless youth.

3. We are but young yet God has shed
Unnumbered blessings on our head;
Then let our youth and riper days
Be all devoted to his praise.

4. We are but young yet we must die,
Perhaps our latter end is nigh:
Lord, may we early seek thy grace,
And find in Christ a hiding place.

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 >
