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
When on her Maker's bosom
The new-born earth was laid,
And nature's op'ning blossom
Its fairest bloom displayed;
When all with fruits and flowers,
The laughing soil was dressed,
And Eden's fragrant bowers
Received their human guest;

No sin his face defiling,
The heir of nature stood,
And God, benignly smiling,
Beheld that all was good.
Yet in that hour of blessing
A single want was known,—
A wish the heart distressing,—
For Adam was alone.

O God of pure affection,
By men and saints adored,
O, give us Thy protection
Around this nuptial board!
May thy rich bounties ever
To wedded love be shown,
And no rude hand dissever
Whom Thou hast linked in one.
