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

God of Our Fathers, to Thy Throne
Hail, Tranquil Hour of Closing Day
Here, Lord of Life and Light, to Thee
How Sweet, Through Long Remembered Years
Land Where the Bones of Our Fathers Are
O God, Beneath Thy Guiding Hand
O God of Abraham, Ever Sure
O Thou Who Hast Died to Redeem Us from Hell
Though Now the Nations Sit Beneath
Wake the Song of Jubilee
Weep Not for the Saint That Ascends
