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 thought I have, my ample creed,
So deep it is and broad,
And equal to my ev'ry need—
It is the thought of God.

Each morn unfolds some fresh surprise,
I feast at life's full board;
And rising in my inner skies
Shines forth the thought of God.

At night, my gladness is my pray'r;
I drop my daily load,
and ev'ry care is pillowed there
Upon the thought of God.

I ask not far before to see,
But take in trust my road;
Life, death, and immortality
Are in the thought of God.

Be still the light upon my way,
My pilgrim staff and rod,
My rest by night, my strength by day,
O, blessed thought of God.
