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
Oh, what is more delightful,
And in what blessed state,
When we our souls and bodies
To God do consecrate?
When we our souls and bodies
To God do consecrate?

We live in blessed nearness
To Thee, Lord, day by day,
As if our eyes beheld Thee;
And joy attends our way.
As if our eyes beheld Thee;
And joy attends our way.

Our lips may be in silence,
Yet prays our hearts to Thee;
Our thoughts are e'er ascending
To heaven constantly.
Our thoughts are e'er ascending
To heaven constantly.

With mercy and with goodness
Our hearts are oft refreshed,
And when we need His presence
He answers our request.
And when we need His presence
He answers our request.

Around His footstool bowing
As children dear are we,
And when our tears are flowing
Straight to His heart we flee.
And when our tears are flowing
Straight to His heart we flee.

And when we do grow weary
He bringeth us to rest;
We in our graves do tarry,
And sleep there with the blest.
We in our graves do tarry,
And sleep there with the blest.

There freed from earthly burdens,
With no more pain or ache,
Till in the glorious morning
He calls: "Awake! Awake!"
Till in the glorious morning
He calls: "Awake! Awake!"

What further shall transpire
May unto us but seem,
While we are rising higher,
As if but in a dream.
While we are rising higher,
As if but in a dream.

With angels upward soaring
Into the realms of light,
Our Saviour there beholding,
We'll share His glory bright.
Our Saviour there beholding,
We'll share His glory bright.

There with the angels singing,
In heaven we shall roam,
With gratitude proclaiming:
We've reached the soul's bright home.
With gratitude proclaiming:
We've reached the soul's bright home.
