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 Love divine, all else transcending,
In Jesus present evermore,
We worship Thee, in homage bending,
And all Thy wondrous might adore.
Yea, let my soul, in deep devotion,
Bathe in love's mighty, boundless ocean.

Thou art my Rest, no earthly treasure
Can satisfy my yearning heart,
Nor is there aught that lends the pleasure
I find in Thee, my chosen part.
Thy love, so tender and caressing
Is fraught with grace and ev'ry blessing.

To Thee my heart and life be given,
Thou art indeed my highest Good;
For me Thy sacred side was riven,
For me was shed Thy precious blood.
O Fountain of the world's salvation,
Be Thine my love and adoration.
