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
We've journey'd many a day
Upon an ocean wide,
Amid the mist and spray
Of many a surging tide;
But, lo! the land is near!
For just beyond the foam
I see it bright and clear,
The light of home, sweet home.

We've had our storms of doubt,
Our rains of bitter tears,
Our fightings fierce without,
Within our anxious fears;
But, lo! the storms are past,
They cannot reach us more;
We've sighted land at last,
The blessed stormless shore.

O land of calmest rest,
Where suns no more go down!
O haven of the blest,
With bliss and glory crown'd!
No more the storm, the dark,
The breakers and the foam,
No more the wail, for hark!
We hear the songs of home.

Chorus:
There's a light upon the shore, brother
It flashes from the strand;
The night is almost o'er, brother,
The haven's just at hand.
