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 >
Father, we give you thanks, who planted
your holy name within our hearts;
knowledge and faith and life immortal
Jesus, your Son, to us imparts.
Lord, you have made all for your pleasure,
and given us food for all our days,
giving in Christ the bread eternal.
Yours is the power; be yours the praise. Go to text page >
