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 the land of strangers,
Whither thou art gone,
Hear a far voice calling,
My son, my son!

From the land of hunger,
Fainting, famished, lone,
Come to love and gladness
My son, my son!

See the door still open,
Thou art still my own;
Eyes of love are on thee,
My son, my son!

See the well-spread table,
Unforgotten one!
Here is rest and plenty,
My son, my son!

Thou art friendless, hopeless,
Hopeless and undone;
Mine is love unchanging,
My son, My son!

Chorus:
Welcome, wand'rer, welcome;
Welcome back to home!
Thou hast wandered far away:
Come home! come Home!
