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
When sounds the hour, O when will I be there?
Home, O sweet home! Home, O sweet home!
Saviour, to meet Thee in heaven so fair?
Home, O sweet home! Home, O sweet home!
Here on this earth there is sorrow and grief,
Only above would my soul find relief,
Therefore my longing for Thee doth increase,
Home, O sweet home! Home, O sweet home!

But, my dear Saviour, Thy will may be done!
Would fain be here! Would fain be here!
Striving with sin till the battle is won,
Would fain be here! Would fain be here!
Loving the Brothers and Sisters in Thee,
Waiting my coming, for then I shall see
Mansions prepared there in heaven for me,
Would fain be here! Would fain be here!

Happy on earth and so happy above,
Wish nothing more! Wish nothing more!
To have Thee, Saviour, for me is enough!
Wish nothing more! Wish nothing more!
Patient in suff'ring, in trials found true;
So happy when my departure is due!
Christ, my faith's Author and Finisher, too,
Wish nothing more! Wish nothing more!
