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
Look up, look up, O watchman!
Fast wane the hours of night;
The mountain tops already
Are fring'd with golden light;
The promised day is breaking,
When every tongue shall sing,
And every tribe and kindred
Shall hail Messiah King.

Look up again, O watchman!
Still brighter grows the scene;
Each star beholds the morning,
And vails its silver sheen;
The powers of sin are falling
Beneath the Spirit's sword,
And distant nations flocking
Around their conquering Lord.

Now lift thy voice, O watchman!
And join the choral song;
God's Holy word must triumph,
Nor will the time be long;
The Cross of our Redeemer,
Held up by faithful hands,
Shall banish heathen darkness,
And rend its tyrant bands.

Chorus:
Awake, O harp of glory,
On Zion's towering hill,
And let thy chords exulting
Send forth a mighty thrill.
