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 lift thy hands on high!
O, pilgrim, tune thy voice;
And sing, for Christ is nigh,
Tell all the earth thy joys;
Rejoice in God, arise and shine,
While rays divine stream all around.

He gilds thy radiant face
With beams that cannot fade;
His all-resplendent grace
He pours around thy head;
All mortals here thy bliss shall view,
With luster new, divinely crowned.

In honor to His name,
Reflect that sacred light;
And loud that grace proclaim,
Which makes thy dardness bright;
Pursue His praise, till sov'reign love,
In worlds above, the glory raise.

There on His holy hill,
A brighter sun shall rise,
And, with His radiance fill
Those fairer, purer skies;
While, 'round His throne, ten thousand times
Ten thousand saints His influence own.

Amen.
