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
If God within these evil days
His mercy were not sharing,
No strength or grace could we obtain;
Our hearts would be despairing.
A remnant small, a handful we,
By many haughty men to be
Despised and persecuted,
Despised and persecuted.

The enemy is wrathful still,
But God with wise direction
Has saved us from the worldly lure
And giv'n our soul protection.
For unbelief with many woes
Has thus increased and overflows
The world, as does a river,
The world, as does a river.

We thank Thee, Lord, we are redeemed!
Our soul they could not capture,
For as a bird from nets released,
We have escaped in rapture.
The bonds are loosed, and we are free,
And strength'ning grace we find in Thee,
The God of earth and heaven,
The God of earth and heaven.
