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
Steep and thorny is the way
Leading us to full perfection;
Blessed they who therein stay,
Battling under Christ's direction.
Blest is he who runs the race,
On the way not falls from grace.

Their reward is truly great
Who, unto the end enduring,
All to Christ do consecrate,
Flee the worldly lust alluring.
They who hope unfailingly
For the crown of victory.

Draw, O Lord, us near to Thee;
Draw to Thee each valiant fighter.
Storm and night surround us here,
But above 'tis calm and brighter.
There, beyond death and the tomb,
Radiant morn dispels the gloom.

Up then, comrades; wend your way
Through the wilderness with courage;
Look to Jesus; watch and pray!
God prepares you for the conflict;
In the weak He shows His might,
And through Christ we'll win the fight.
