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
God, my life's Creator,
Grant me grace and favor
Not to live in vain.
Lord, thy love so holy,
And Thy Spirit lowly
In my heart shall reign.
Thy likeness Let me possess;
With Thy care and Thy direction,
Bring it to perfection!

On those heights up yonder,
Hosts shall stand asunder
In bright radiance;
Those, who in life's morning,
Sinful pleasures scorning,
Went to Thee from hence.
Therefore they Shall ever stay
With the saints whose song increases
In Thy praise, Lord Jesus!

Jesus, friend of children,
Thou who for the sinners
Didst on earth appear,
O, how kind and tender
Was Thy heart to render
Loving help and cheer!
Lord, that we Become like Thee
In our thought and conversation,
Be our emulation.

Blest is he who loves Thee;
Blest, who aims sincerely,
God, Thy child to be.
Such pure inclinations,
Thy love's inspirations,
Give, O Lord, to me,
That I wear in heaven fair
Thy blest, pure and holy likeness
In eternal brightness.
