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.

Jesus Satisfies

Lyrics
When Jesus no longer stands preciously nigh,
When sorrows like sea billows roll;
I look to the Rock that is higher than I,
And peace, wondrous peace floods my soul.

The sun may be shining on fields bright and gay,
With springtime perfumes in the breeze;
Yet, life without Jesus is winter in May,
Without Him no prospect can please.

If living like Paul all victorious and free,
Tho' beaten while multitudes stare;
Tho' put behind bars 'twould be heaven to me,
For Jesus would dwell with me there.

If faithful in standing for what I believe
Brings scoffing and fire, I can dare
To laugh in the furnace where I am to burn,
For Jesus will dwell with me there.

Chorus:
Jesus satisfies, Jesus satisfies;
Clouds at His presence roll away;
Jesus satisfies, Jesus satisfies;
His glory turns my darkness into day.
