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.

He also played the organ and belonged to the Boston Church of the New Jerusalem. He and Lowell Mason founded a music academy in Boston, as well as collaborating on their Musical Library. Webb also composed several choral and organ works, including “Prelude in Eb” and “Postlude in A.”

Webb’s best known tune, “Webb,” came from a secular song he wrote, called “’Tis Dawn, the Lark is Singing”; this song was performed at a musical show on a ship crossing the Atlantic Ocean.
