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
On life's sea, amid its tempest,
Wreck'd ones sink and die:
Lo, we man the Gospel Life-boat,
Summoned by their cry!

Who will cross the stormy waters?
Who for Christ will go,
Braving fear and deadly danger,
Savion friend and foe?

Brother, near thy side we linger,
Heailing, warning thee:
Leap for life! 'tis now, or never!
Christ, thy Saviour, see!

Leave the wreck! it sinks beneath thee!
Leave thy worthless all!
Life is better far than riches,
Leap at mercy's call!

Must we leave thee, clinging, dying?
Brother, trust this hour!
Praise the Lord!
He grasps thee! saves thee!
Rescued by His pow'r.

Chorus:
Launch away! the signal rises!
Face the stormy wave!
Jesus watches o'er the billows,
Jesus waits to save.
