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.

Nägeli, son of a clergyman, has been called “the man who taught Switzerland to sing.” He was virtually a national hero of popular music and folk singing; his most popular song, still sung in beer tents the world over, is “Freut euch des Lebens” (1791).
