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.

Hymns

* Almighty God, Your Word Is Cast
Begin a Joyful Song
Behold Yon Wondrous Star
Blessed Father, Great Creator
Child of win** and Wrath I’m Born, A
Christians, the Glorious Hope Ye Know
Hark! What Mean Those Holy Voices?
Hark! What Mean Those Lamentations
In Israel’s Fame, by Silent Night
King o’er All Worlds the Savior Shone
Son of God, in Worlds on High, The
Trembling with Tenderest Alarms
