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 >

My dearest, lovely, native land

My dearest, lovely, native land,
Where peace and pleasure grow,
Where joy, with fairest softest hand,
Wipes off the tears of woe;
Thy Sabbath's laws, and happy shores,
And name I love them well,
And looking o'er those richest stores,
How can I say farewell?
