O, let us exalt our dear Lord and proclaim,
In songs of true gratitude, praise to His name!

Our thanks and our praises shall rise to the Lord.

Lyrics
America, triumphant!
Brave land of pioneers:
On mountain peak and prairie
Their winding trail appears.
The wilderness is planted;
The desers bloom and sing;
On coast and plain the cities
Their smoky banners fling.

America, triumphant!
New shrine of pilgrim feet!
The poor and lost and hunted
Before thine altars meet.
From sword of czar and sultan,
From ban of priest and peer,
To thee o'er trackless waters
They come in hope and fear.

America, triumphant!
Grasp firm the sword and shield;
Not yet have all thy foemen
Been driven from the field.
They lurk by forge and market,
They hide in mine and mill;
And bold with greed and conquest,
They flout thy blessed will!

America, my country!
Triumphant thou shalt be!
Thy hills and vales shall echo
The shouts of liberty.
Thy bard shall sing thy glory,
Thy prophets tell thy praise,
And all thy sons and daughters
Acclaim thy golden days.
