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
Now another day is ended
And the sun did disappear;
God's true love, to us extended;
Has this day been ever near.
God's true love, to us extended;
Has this day been ever near.

Yea, His goodness, grace and favor
Have protected us with care;
Joy and peace, life's sweetest savor,
He with childlike hearts does share.
Joy and peace, life's sweetest savor,
He with childlike hearts does share.

He this day with grace has blest us,
Praise be to His holy name;
Lifted burdens that oppressed us,
And in love unto us came.
Lifted burdens that oppressed us,
And in love unto us came.

Where the Lord withholds His blessing
There all labor is in vain;
When our trust in Him is anchored,
Then His goodwill we will gain.
When our trust in Him is anchored,
Then His goodwill we will gain.

Therefore, thank we Thee, dear Father,
That Thou art with us each day;
For Thy good and blessed counsel,
And Thy help upon our way.
For Thy good and blessed counsel,
And Thy help upon our way.

Also in this evening hour
Come we, Father, nigh to Thee,
Praise with heart and tongue Thy power;
Hearken to our childlike plea!
Praise with heart and tongue Thy power;
Hearken to our childlike plea!

May Thy word in heart and spirit
Give us joy and comfort sweet;
May the torch of heav'nly wisdom
Be a light unto our feet.
May the torch of heav'nly wisdom
Be a light unto our feet.

Faithful God, we now implore Thee,
In this night our guardian be!
If Thou shouldst refuse protection,
Then our watch in vain would be.
If Thou shouldst refuse protection,
Then our watch in vain would be.

Thou art still our shield and Saviour,
Our good sentinel at night;
In our prayers we seek Thy favor,
Trusting only in Thy might.
In our prayers we seek Thy favor,
Trusting only in Thy might.

Unto Thee we draw in chorus,
Praying that we may be blest;
Guard us on our pilgrim journey;
Grant us joy and peace and rest.
Guard us on our pilgrim journey;
Grant us joy and peace and rest.
