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
Lead, kindly Light, amid th'encircling gloom, Lead Thou me on!
The night is dark, and I am far from home; Lead Thou me on!
Keep Thou my feet, I do not ask to see
The distant scene; one step enough for me.

I was not ever thus, nor prayed that Thou Shouldst lead me on;
I loved to choose and see my path; but now Lead Thou me on!
I loved the garish day, and, spite of fears,
Pride ruled my will, remember not past years!

So long Thy pow'r hath blessed me, sure it still Will lead me on
O'er moor and fen, o'er crag and torrent till The night is gone,
And with the morn those angel faces smile,
Which I have loved long since and lost awhile!
