Representative Text

1 Ye flaming hosts enthroned in light,
To Christ your solemn anthems raise;
Return the sound, Heav’n’s sacred height,
And echo back, ye skies, His praise.

2 Gaze, ye astonished nations, gaze,
Fix on the Babe your wondering eyes;
Hosannas to the Infant raise,
And shout your overwhelming joys.

3 O man! ’tis thou alone who ought
To lead the universal song;
’Twas love to thee the Savior brought,
From yonder bright adoring throng.

4 Extol your king! ye favored race,
Emmanuel, His name adore;
Fall down and magnify His grace,
And praise your God forevermore.

And thou, my soul, adore thy Lord,
Pay homage to the holy Child;
Salute the meek incarnate Word,
Whose glory beams supremely mild.

5 Bow low before the infant King,
And make thy kindling raptures known;
Thy richest offerings to Him bring,
And bless the Father’s equal Son.

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 >
