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
One sweetly solemn tho't
Comes to me o'er and o'er;
I'm nearer home today
Than e'er I've been before.

Nearer my Father's house,
Where many mansions be;
Nearer the great white throne,
Nearer the crystal sea.

Nearer the bound of life,
Where burdens are laid down;
Nearer to leave the cross
Nearer to gain the crown.

But lying dark between,
Winding down thro' the night,
There rolls the unknown stream
That leads at last to light.

E'en now, perchance my feet
Are slipping on the brink;
And I am nearer home,
Nearer than now I think.

Father, perfect my trust!
Strengthen my pow'r of faith!
Nor let me stand alone
Upon the shore of death.

Chorus:
I'm nearer home today,
I'm nearer home today,
Than e'er I've been before.
