When the Wheat Is Planted

When the wheat is planted

Author: Anonymous
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 When the wheat is planted
In the deep dark bed,
Mothers pray their children
Will have daily bread.

2 God sends sun and showers,
Birds sing overhead,
While the wheat is growing
For our daily bread.

3 When the wheat is gathered,
Stored in barn and shed,
Then we all aree thankful
For our daily bread.

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 >
