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
O, God, beneath Thy guiding hand
Our exiled fathers crossed the sea;
And when they trod the wint'ry strand,
With pray'r and psalm, they worshipped Thee.

To heard'st, well-pleased, the song, the pray'r;
Thy blessings came, and still its pow'r
Shall onward through all ages bear
The mem'ry of that holy hour.

Laws, freedom, truth, and faith in God
Came with those exiles o'er the waves,
And where their pilgrim feet have trod,
The God they trusted guards their graves.

And here Thy name, O, God of love,
Their children's children shall adore,
Till these eternal hills remove,
And spring adorns the earth no more.
