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

How Are Thy Servants Blest, O Lord!
Lord My Pasture Shall Prepare, The
Spacious Firmament on High, The
When All Thy Mercies, O My God
When Israel, Freed from Pharaoh’s Hand
When Rising from the Bed of Death
