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
For the beauty of the earth,
For the glory of the skies,
For the love which from our birth
Over and around us lies,
Christ, our God, to Thee we raise
This our hymn of grateful praise,
This our hymn of grateful praise,
This our hymn of grateful praise.

For the wonder of each hour
Of the day and of the night,
Hill and vale, and tree and flower,
Sun and moon, and stars of light,
Christ, our God, to Thee we raise
This our hymn of grateful praise,
This our hymn of grateful praise,
This our hymn of grateful praise.

For the joy of human love,
Brother, sister, parent, child,
Friends on earth, and friends above,
Pleasure pure and undefiled,
Christ, our God, to Thee we raise
This our hymn of grateful praise,
This our hymn of grateful praise,
This our hymn of grateful praise.

For Thy Church that evermore
Lifteth holy hands above,
Off'ring up on ev'ry shore
Her pure sacrifice of love,
Christ, our God, to Thee we raise
This our hymn of grateful praise,
This our hymn of grateful praise,
This our hymn of grateful praise.
