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
Rise, ye children of salvation,
All who cleave to Christ, the Head.
Wake, arise, O mighty nation,
Ere the foe on Zion tread.
He draws nigh and would defy
All the hosts of God most High.

Saints and heroes long before us
Firmly on this ground have stood;
See, their banners waving o'er us,
Conqu'rors thro' the Saviour's blood.
Ground we hold whereon of old
Fought the faithful and the bold.

Fighting, we shall be victorious
By the blood of Christ, our Lord;
On our foreheads, bright and glorious,
Shines the witness of His Word;
Spear and shield on battlefield,
His great Name we cannot yield.

When His servants stand before Him,
Each receiving his reward;
When His saints in light adore Him,
Giving glory to the Lord.
"Victory!" our song shall be
Like the number of the sea.

Amen.
