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
The morning light is breaking
The darkness disappears
The sons of earth are waking
To penitential tears;
Each breeze that sweeps the ocean
Brings tidings from afar,
Of nations in commotion,
Prepared for Zion's war.

See heathen nations bending
Before the God we love,
And thousand hearts ascending
In gratitude above;
While sinners, now confessing,
The gospel call obey,
And seek the Saviour's blessing—
A nation in a day.

Blest river of salvation,
Pursue thine onward way;
Flow thou to ev'ry nation,
Nor in thy richness stay;
Stay not 'till all the lowly
Triumphant reach their Home;
Stay not 'till all the holy
Proclaim— "The Lord is come!"
