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
Thou man of grief and pain,
Chastised by God, the Father!
For all Thou didst sustain
To praise Thee now we gather.
For all Thy anguish sore,
For Thy bonds and distress,
For cruelties and scourge,
And for death's bitterness.

Thy conflict is our gain;
Thy death gives life immortal;
Thy bonds and fetters have
Unlocked our prison's portal.
Thy cross is our relief;
Thy wounds have healed our heart;
Thy blood has purchased us
The ransomed sinner's part.

Lord, give us courage bold
And patience in affliction,
That we may bear our cross
And yield to Thy correction!
Help us to look to Thee
And to Thy crown of thorns,
If e'er our lot should be
Blood, torture, shame, and scorn.

Thy anguish make us brave
To face distress and sorrow,
And in the throes of death
From Thy death strength to borrow;
O let the bond of love
Bind us with one accord
To crucify the flesh
And world through Thee, O Lord!
