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
In heav'n above, in heav'n above,
Where God our Father dwells,
How boundless there the blessedness!
No tongue its greatness tells;
There face to face, and full and free,
Forever, evermore we see
Our God, the Lord of hosts!

In heav'n above, in heav'n above,
What glory deep and bright!
The splendor of the noon-day sun
Grows pale before its light;
The heav'nly light that ne'er goes down,
Around whose radiance clouds ne'er frown,
Is God, the Lord of hosts!

In heav'n above, in heav'n above,
God hath a joy prepared
Which mortal ear had never heard
Nor mortal vision shared,
Which never entered mortal breast,
By mortal lips was ne'er expressed:
'Tis God, the Lord of hosts!
