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
Lo! what a glorious sight appears
To our believing eyes!
The earth and sea are passed away,
The earth and sea are passed away,
And the old rolling skies.

From the third heav'n where God resides,
That holy, happy place,
The New Jerusalem comes down,
The New Jerusalem adorned with grace,
Adorned with shining grace.

The God of glory down to men
Removes His blest abode—
Men, the dear objects of His grace,
Men, the dear objects, He the loving God,
And He, the loving God.

His own soft hand shall wipe the tear
From ev'ry weeping eye;
And pains and groans, and griefs and fears,
And pains and groans, and griefs and fears,
And death itself shall die!

How long, dear Savior, O how long
Shall this bright hour delay?
Fly swifter 'round, ye wheels of time,
Fly swifter 'round, ye wheels of time,
And bring the welcome day!
