We are soldiers in the army.
We have to fight although we have to cry.
We've got to hold up the blood-stained banner.
We've got to hold it up until we die!

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 >
