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 homeland in heaven draws me from this earth,
The homeland in heaven alone has true worth.
Naught here stills my longing, naught can me inspire,
To dwell there forever is what I desire;
To dwell there forever is what I desire.

Why art thou cast down, O my spirit, in me?
Why seekest thou vainly true rest here to see?
Here tempests of trouble oft sweep over me,
And oft is my bark tossed on blustery seas;
And oft is my bark tossed on blustery seas.

There tears never fall and no night shall be there,
The stars in their splendor God's glory declare;
And greatest of raptures! My eyes there shall see
The face of my Saviour in eternity!
The face of my Saviour in eternity!

Farewell then, O earth, I am only thy guest,
Depart with thy joys! From thy burdens I'll rest!
Thy hills and thy valleys, though wondrously fair,
Cannot with the heavenly glories compare!
Cannot with the heavenly glories compare!
