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
O Jerusalem, the golden,
Where God's praises ever ever ring;
Heav'nly choirs to Thee beholden,
"Holy, Holy, Holy!" sing.
O when will God grant to me,
Thy glad citizen to be!
Thy glad citizen to be!

In this pilgrim habitation,
In the heat of trials setrials severe,
Ere our suff'ring finds cessation,
Pain and strife assail us here.
But the Lord gives hope and strength,
To prevail thru faith at length,
To prevail thru faith at length.

Come and lead us full of gladness,
Gentle Shepherd, by Thy by Thy hand.
After all this pain and sadness,
Into that true Fatherland,
Where the living waters free,
Quench our thirst eternally,
Quench our thirst eternally.

But if I must longer tarry
On this wild, tempestuous sea,
Where on frail bark I am sailing,
Storms and waves are tossing me,
Though the cross and death I see,
Still let hope my anchor be!
Still let hope my anchor be!
