O, let us exalt our dear Lord and proclaim,
In songs of true gratitude, praise to His name!
As songs of the angels in sweetest accord,
Our thanks and our praises shall rise to the Lord.

Lyrics
Father, to us Thy children humbly kneeling,
Conscious of weakness, ign'rance, sin and shame,
Give such a force of holy thought and feeling,
That we may live to glorify Thy name.

That we may conquer base desire and passion,
That we may rise from selfishl thought and will,
O'ercome the world's allurement, threat, and fashion,
Walk humbly, gently, leaning on Thee still.

Let all Thy goodness by our minds be heeded,
Let all Thy mercy on our souls be sealed;
Thy pow'r, O Lord, can give the cleansing needed;
O, speak the word, Thy servants shall be healed.
