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
All nature's works His praise declare
To Whom the all belong;
There is a voice in ev'ry star,
In ev'ry breeze a song.
Sweet music fills the world abroad
With strains of love and pow'r;
The stormy sea sings praise to God,
The thunder and the show'r.

To God the tribes of ocean cry,
And birds upon the wing;
To God, the pow'rs that dwell on high
Their tuneful tribute bring!
Like them, let man the Throne surround,
With them loud chorus raise;
While instruments of loftiest sound
Assist his feeble praise.

Great God! to Thee we consecrate
Our voices and our skill;
We bid the pealing organ wait
To speak alone Thy Will.
O, teach its rich and swelling notes
To lift our souls on high;
And while the music round us floats,
Let earth-born passion die.
