O, let us exalt our dear Lord and proclaim,
In songs of true gratitude, praise to His name!

Our thanks and our praises shall rise to the Lord.

Lyrics
I heard the sound of voices, around the great white throne,
With harpers harping on their harps to him that sat thereon:
"Salvation, glory, honor!" I heard the song arise,
As through the courts of heaven it rolled in wondrous harmonies.

From every clime and kindred, and nations from afar,
As serried ranks returning home in triumph from a war,
I heard the saints upraising, the myriad hosts among,
In praise of him who died and lives, their one glad triumph song.

I saw the holy city, the New Jerusalem,
Come down from heav'n, a bride adorned with jeweled diadem;
The flood of crystal waters flowed down the golden street;
And nations brought their honors there, and laid them at her feet.

And there no sun was needed, nor moon to shine by night,
God's glory did enlighten all, the Lamb himself the Light;
And there his servants serve him, and, life's long battle o'er,
Enthroned with him, their Savior King, they reign forevermore.

O great and glorious vision, the Lamb upon His throne!
O wondrous sight for man to see! the Saviour with his own;
To drink the living waters and stand upon the shore,
Where neither sorrow, sin nor death shall enter ever more.

O Lamb of God who reignest, thou bright and morning Star!
Whose glory lightens that new earth which now we see from far;
O worthy Judge eternal, when thou dost bid us come,
Then open wide the gates of pearl and call Thy servants Home.
