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
Light of the world, we hail Thee,
Flashing the eastern skies;
Never shall darkness veil Thee,
Again from human eyes;
Too long, alas! withholden,
Now spread from shore to shore;
Thy light so glad and golden,
Shall set on earth no more.

Light of the world, Thy beauty
Steals into ev'ry heart,
And glorifies with duty
Life's poorest, humblest part;
Thou robest in Thy splendor
The simple ways of men,
And helpest them to render
Light back to Thee again.

Light of the world, before Thee
Our spirits prostrate fall;
We worship, we adore Thee;
Thou Light, the Life of all;
With Thee is not forgetting
Of all Thine hand hath made;
Thy rising hath no setting,
Thy sunshine hath no shade.

Light of the world, illumine
This darkened land of Thine,
Till ev'rything that's human
Be filled with what's Divine;
Till ev'ry tongue and nation,
From sin's dominion free,
Rise in the new creation
Which springs from Love and Thee.
