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, the agonizing pray'r
Rising on the midnight air!
"Let this cup pass from Thy Son;
Not My will, but, Thine be done!"

O, the tears and bloody sweat
Falling fast on Olivet!
In Thy lonely agony,
Shedding crimson tears for me!

O, what wrath of earth and hell
On Thy head, unpitying, fell,
When Thy passion-time began,
Bearer of the sin of man!

Waken me from sinful sleep;
Faithful, loving, make me keep,
Watching ev'ry hour with Thee
Who did agonize for me!
