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
I know a land where peace does e'er abide,
No leaded grey the azure blue can hide,
Where kindliness abounds for which we yearn,
Where unfeign'd love, sweet love wins in return.
Seek'st thou this land (of happiness)?
Seek'st thou this land (of happiness)?
Seek not afar or it cannot be found,
Seek not afar or it cannot be found!

I know a land of blessed liberty
Where tyrant rules no slave with tyranny,
Where thy enlightened mind can e'er hold sway,
Where hypocrites thy faith cannot gainsay,
Where precious gold (is not called glaze),
Where precious gold (is not called glaze),
Nay, there the precious gold is ne'er called glaze,
But only true deserts receive the praise.

Do you wish to know where this land is found?
Not thru dark gorges and the world around,
Not over mountains high and glaciers bleak,
Must thou traverse this lovely land to seek.
It is so near (be true and pure),
It is so near (be true and pure),
Be freed from sin, O bow in fervent pray'r
Seek in your heart, and you will find it there!
