 •  1 min. read  •  grade level: 12
There are twenty-five hymns with no writers identified. These are numbers 57 (translated by Mrs. Bevan), 58, 78, 81, 83, 108, 113, 154, 163, 176, 182, 203, 277, 288, 305, 313, 325 (translated by Hannah K. Burlingham), 337, and in the Appendix numbers 28, 30, 45, 57, 59, 61, 65.
All of these hymns have their merits in expressing praise or worship to our Lord. The day is coming when we shall meet and know all the saints we never knew on earth, and that will include the unknown hymn writers who know the salvation of the Lord through the Lord Jesus Christ.
“We look to meet our brethren
From every distant shore;
Not one will seem a stranger
Though never seen before,
With angel hosts attending
In myriads through the sky—
Yet ‘midst them all Thou only,
O Lord, wilt fix the eye.”
