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
Jesus wept! those tears are over,
But His heart is still the same.
Kinsman, Friend, and Elder Brother,
Is His everlasting name.
Saviour, who can love like Thee?
Gracious One of Bethany,
Gracious One of Bethany.

When the pangs of trial sieze us,
When the waves of sorrow roll,
I will lay my head on Jesus,
Pillow of the troubled soul.
Surely none can feel like Thee,
Weeping One of Bethany,
Weeping One of Bethany.

Jesus wept! and still in glory,
He can mark each mourner's tears;
Living to retrace the story
Of the hearts He solaced here.
Lord, when I am called to die,
Let me think of Bethany,
Let me think of Bethany.

Jesus wept! those tears of sorrow
Are a legacy of love;
Yesterday, today, tomorrow,
He the same doth ever prove.
Thou art all in all to me,
Living One of Bethany!
Living One of Bethany.
