O, let us exalt our dear Lord and proclaim,
In songs of true gratitude, praise to His name!

Our thanks and our praises shall rise to the Lord.

Lyrics
Dear Father, now behold us
Approach Thy throne of grace,
To pray in our Lord Jesus,
We seek Thy loving face.
Bestow on us, Thy children,
Thy blessings manifold,
Thy love, Thy grace, and mercy,
As Thou hast done of old.

Hallowed be Thy dear name, Lord,
Of all Thy children host,
Whom Thou hast taught in Thy word
What here is needful most.
Thy name in all the ransomed
In truth be sanctified.
Prepare us on life's journey
With Thee there to reside.

May, Lord, Thy kingdom enter
Each true and faithful heart,
Which doth in truth and candor
Seek for the better part.
Lord, we, Thy children, call Thee,
With heart and soul implore,
That Thou Thy kingdom's glory
Forever wilt restore.

Thy will and Thy commandments
Be done of us on earth
That each may learn with patience
Their value and true worth.
Forever there in heaven,
Thy mandates forward go;
May we with Thy grace given
Do likewise here below.

Our daily bread, Lord, give us
For body, soul, and mind,
Thy words of life so precious,
So pure and so refined.
We pray Thee for Thy favor,
Our Lord on heaven's throne;
Thy bread of heaven's flavor
Can please our hearts alone.

Forgive us our transgressions,
Where we, O Lord, have not
In words, in deeds, or patience
Done as Thy word has taught.
They are unworthy servants
Who do no more at best
Than what laws and commandments
Require of them, then rest.

Let us, Thy children, mindful,
Obey Thy words with cheer;
Let none of us be idle,
Nor indolent while here.
And as Thou, Lord, hast mercy,
Where we not right have done,
So are we ever ready,
Forgiving everyone.

When Satan gives oppression
And night and darkness fall,
Give courage and discretion
To conquer over all;
And when in tribulations,
Grant us new strength and power;
And with Christ's inspiration,
Prepare us for the hour.

The glory and the kingdom
Forever Thine shall be,
Almighty King and Sov'reign,
In all eternity!
Put to extermination
Those pow'rs of wicked life.
O, may for all creation
Redemption soon arrive.

And now in termination,
Amen, so shall it be.
Our prayers and supplications
Shall bring response from Thee.
Thou art the true and faithful,
The God of Covenant!
In Thee our heart is joyful,
Our God of Hosts so grand.
