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
Glorious things of thee are spoken,
Zion, city of our God;
He whose word cannot be broken
Formed thee for his own abode;

Savior, if of Zion's city,
I through grace a member am,
Let the world deride or pity,
I will glory in thy Name.

Fading is the worldling's pleasure,
All his boasted pomp and show;
Solid joys and lasting treasure
None but Zion's children know.

Chorus:
On the Rock of Ages founded,
What can shake thy sure repose?
With salvation's walls surrounded,
Thou canst smile at all thy foes.
