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

Again the Lord of Light and Life
Awake, My Soul, Lift Up Thine Eyes
Behold, Where Breathing Love Divine
Come, Said Jesus’ Sacred Voice
God of My Life and Author of My Days
God, Our Kind Master, Merciful as Just
How Blest the Sacred Tie That Binds
How May Earth and Heaven Unite
If Friendless in the Vale of Tears I Stray
Jehovah Reigns, Let Every Nation Hear
Joy to the Followers of the Lord
Lo Where a Crowd of Pilgrims Toil
Our Country is Immanuel’s Ground
Praise to God, Immortal Praise
Pure Spirit, O Where Art Thou Now
Salt of the Earth, Ye Virtuous Few
Sleep, Sleep Today, Tormenting Cares
Sweet is the Scene when Virtue Dies
How Blest the Righteous When He Dies!
This Earthly Globe, the Creature of a Day
When as Returns the Solemn Day
When Life as Opening Buds Is Sweet
