1 We come, Lord, to Thy feet,
On this Thy holy day:
Oh, come to us, while here we meet
To learn, and praise, and pray!

2 Our many sins forgive;
The Holy Spirit send;
And teach us to begin to live
The life that knows no end.

3 Lord, fill our hearts with love;
Our teachers' labors own;
That we and they may meet above,
To sing before Thy throne.

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 >

Notes

We come, Lord, to Thy feet. [Opening of Sunday School.] This hymn, together with the companion hymn for the Closing of a Sunday School, "O Lord, our hearts would give Thee praise," appeared on a card printed for Sunday-school use by Bishop Pelham, when Incumbent of Christ Church, Hampstead. Both hymns were adapted by him from another and now unknown source. The Rev. E. H. Bickersteth included both hymns, with slight alterations, in his Psalms & Hymns, &c, 1858, from thence they have passed into several collections. W. F. Stevenson attributes the former in his Hymns for Church and Home, 1873, to Lady Lucy Whitmore, 1824, but we have failed to find it in her Family Prayers, &c, 1824, and know of no authority for the ascription. --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology (1907)
