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
Faith of our Mothers, living yet
In cradle song and bedtime pray'r,
In nurs'ry care and fireside love,
Thy presence still pervades the air;
Faith of our Mothers, living faith,
We will be true to thee till death!

Faith of our Mothers lavish faith,
The fount of childhood's trust and grace,
O, may thy consecration prove
The well-spring of a nobler race;
Faith of our Mothers, lavish faith,
We will be true to thee till death!

Faith of our Mothers, guiding faith,
For youthful longing— youthful doubt,
How blurred our vision, blind our way,
Thy providential care without;
Faith of our Mothers, guiding faith,
We will be true to thee till death!

Faith of our Mothers, Christian faith,
In truth beyond our manmade creeds
Still serve the home and save the church,
And breathe thy spirit thru' our deeds;
Faith of our Mothers, Christian faith,
We will be true to thee till death!
