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
The years are bearing us swift away,
We are gathering home,
Tho' earth allures us, we may not stay,
We are gathering home.

Each day we're nearing the golden shore,
We are gathering home,
Our wand'rings weary will soon be o'er,
We are gathering home.

Tho' dear ones leave us so silently,
We are gathering home,
We soon shall follow and with them be,
We are gathering home.

Oh, praise the Lord for His wondrous love,
We are gathering home,
Oh, praise the Lord for the home above,
We are gathering home.

Chorus:
Gathering home to the mansions of light,
Home to that city where cometh no night,
Home with the loved ones who passed on before,
There shall we dwell in bliss evermore,
