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
Let me go, let me go!
Lord, to me, Thy presence show;
Thither still my heart is turning,
For Thy heav'nly courts is yearning,
There Thy perfect rest to know!

Sweetest light, sweetest light,
Sun that scatters clouds in flight;
O when shall I come before Thee,
When shall I with saints adore Thee,
Dwelling in Thy presence bright?

Ah, how clear, ah, how clear,
Ring the angels' voices there!
While my soul for wings is sighing,
From this world I would be flying
Unto Zion's city fair.

What shall be, What shall be
All the joy laid up for me?
Lord, I know not, eyes are holden,
Till Jerusalem, the golden,
In its beauty, I shall see!

Paradise, Paradise!
Fairest fruits delight our eyes,
Where the tree of life is planted
Bliss beyond our dreams is granted;
Bring us, Lord, to Paradise!
