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.

Lyrics
It really is not difficult
A blessed man to be;
We trust the Lord with good result,
And live in Him so free.

Then one is neither slave nor lord
But just a happy child,
Becomes more blessed as he gives
His life to Him so mild.

We labor with a good design,
In good and bad repute,
Like as a tree in proper time
Brings forth its flow'r and fruit.

We do not view our labor as
A task that we must do;
The Lord in us at all times has
Done what He asks to do.

One gladly yields to His good care
In everything while here,
Is happy always, everywhere,
As long as God is near.

So blessed is a trusting child,
So rich in love and rest;
And if we're thus not satisfied,
We'll nevermore be blest.
