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
Forever with the Lord
My blessed lot shall be,
His Word is like a shining star
And gently leadeth me.
I journey through this world,
I am a stranger here.
I shall pursue my pilgrim's course,
Unto my Saviour dear,
Near to Thee, Near to Thee,
I'm drawing near to Thee.

I often look above
Unto my Home so fair,
For often in life's journey here
I wish that I were there,
A longing fills my heart
To see the city's light,
The golden new Jerusalem,
Adorned with jewels bright,
O how fair, O how fair,
I wish to enter there.

Dark clouds will oft obscure,
My view to heav'n above,
I take my flight to Christ, the Ark,
Like unto Noah's dove.
The clouds will pass away,
When storms and pain depart;
The rainbow of His promise true,
Will cheer my longing heart.
Peaceful light, Peaceful light,
Consoling to my heart.

When once my senses fail,
And death shall set me free,
From death to everlasting life,
I'll rise triumphantly.
I'll see the glories there
Foretold in Thy good Word,
Then shall I be, O wondrous tho't!
Forever with the Lord.
Wonderful! Wonderful!
Forever with the Lord.
