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
He dies! the Friend of sinners dies!
Lo, Salem's daughters weep around!
A solemn darkness veils the skies!
A sudden tremb'ling shakes the ground!

Come, saints, and drop a tear or two
For Him who groaned beneath your load;
He shed a thousand drops for you—
A thousand drops of richest blood!

Here's love and grief beyond degree;
The Lord of glory dies for men;—
But lo, what sudden joys we see!
Jesus, the dead, revives again.

The rising Lord forsakes the tomb—
The tomb in vain forbids His rise;
Cherubic legions guard Him home,
And shout Him welcome to the skies.
