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
Zion, Zion, lovely Zion,
Thy fair fame the world hath heard;
Zion, Zion, lovely Zion,
City of our blessed Lord;
All thy gates are set with splendor,
All thy tow'rs how bright they shine;
God Himself is thy defender,
Zion, city all divine.

Zion, Zion, lovely Zion,
From thee, brighter than the sun,
Zion, Zion, lovely Zion,
Christ shines forth to ev'ry one;
From thee glows the living waters
Christ to all doth freely give,
There earth's dying sons and daughters,
Drink the precious draught and live.

Zion, Zion, lovely Zion,
Of thee ever we will sing,
Zion, Zion, lovely Zion,
Unto thee our gifts we bring;
Time, nor sense, nor aught can sever,
Zion these fond hearts from thee,
Christ hath chosen thee forever,
He, thy King, our God shall be.
