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
Now from the altar of my heart
Let sweetest incense rise:
Assist me, Lord, to offer up
Mine evening sacrifice.

Awake, my love! awake my joy!
Awake my heart and tongue!
Sleep not, when mercies loudly call;
Break forth into a song.

This day God was my sun and shield,
My Keeper and my Guide;
His care was on my frailty shown,
His mercies multiplied.

Lord of my time, whose hand hath set
New time upon my score,
Then shall I praise for all my time,
When time shall be no more.
AMEN.
