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
O where is the home of the soul to be found!
Who knows its true shelter where comforts abound?
What city of refuge will offer a place
That sin cannot enter the soul to disgrace?
Nowhere, nowhere do we behold
On earth such a city of blessings untold.

How blissful the rest in that city so fair,
Where, dwelling with Jesus, the soul has no care!
The sounding of harps in those mansions above
Do bid the soul welcome in heavenly love.
Rest, rest, rest, rest, heavenly rest,
I long to embrace thee to be with the blest.

So leave this poor earth if that home thou wouldst see,
The home of the sainted from sorrow made free.
Jerusalem city resplendent in gold,
Wilt thou to the soul all thy beauties unfold?
Truly, truly, Thou art the goal,
Where rest is the portion of ev'ry pure soul!
