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
By cool Siloam's shady rill
How fair the lily grows!
How sweet the breath, beneath the hill,
Of Sharon's dewy rose!

Lo! such the child whose early feet
The oaths of peace have trod,
Whose secret heart, with influence sweet,
Is upward drawn to God.

O thou, whose infant feet were found
Within thy Father's shrine,
Whose years with changeless virtue crowned,
Were all alike divine.

Dependent on thy bounteous breath,
We seek thy grace alone,
In childhood, manhood, age, and death
To keep us still thine own.
