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 >
Author: Mary A. Bachelor
Bachelor, Mary A. This is the name which Mr. Sankey gives as the writer of "Go, bury thy sorrow," p. 1566, i. He adds that it originally began, "Bury thy sorrow, hide it with care." It was found by P. P. Bliss in a newspaper, and altered by him for musical reasons. See My Life and Sacred Songs, by I. D. Sankey, 1906.
