Hymn to Good St Anne / To Kneel at Thine Altar

The author of this hymn about St Anne, mother of Mary, is unknown.  

It was published, unattributed in the St Basil Hymnal, 1918 - as based on this, it's assumed to now be public domain.

It is sometimes sung to the LOURDES HYMN (Immaculate Mary ), although some of the words aren't a great fit, suggesting iit may have been written for another tune.   If you have any information about this, please leave a message in the Comments box near the bottom of the page.

Lyrics

Saint Anne, we implore you to listen to our prayer,
In time of temptation take us in your care.

Chorus:
O Good Saint Anne we call on your name.
Your praises loud, your children proclaim.

To kneel at your altar, in faith we draw near,
Led onward by Mary, your daughter so dear.

In this life obtain for us that which is best,
And bring us at last to our heavenly rest.

Of old when our fathers first touched this bright shore,
They named thee its patron and saint evermore.

St Anne we implore thee to listen to our prayer
In time of temptation, take us to thy care.

St. Anne is in heaven and joins us in prayer
To praise the Lord’s blessings and love that we share.

For all those who come here you offer your prayer
That they may find comfort in Jesus’ dear care.

See more ...


KEEP IN CASE ORIGINAL IS REMOVED, BUT DO NOT DISPLAY
Saint Anne, we implore you to listen to our prayer,
In time of temptation take us in your care.

Chorus:
O Good Saint Anne we call on your name.
Your praises loud, your children proclaim.

To kneel at your altar, in faith we draw near,
Led onward by Mary, your daughter so dear.

In this life obtain for us that which is best,
And bring us at last to our heavenly rest.

Of old when our fathers first touched this bright shore,
They named thee its patron and saint evermore.

St Anne we implore thee to listen to our prayer
In time of temptation, take us to thy care.

St. Anne is in heaven and joins us in prayer
To praise the Lord’s blessings and love that we share.

For all those who come here you offer your prayer
That they may find comfort in Jesus’ dear care.

St. Anne of the Sunset in work and in prayer
We seek your fair word upon all that we bear
