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
Our blest Redeemer, ere He breathed
His tender last farewell,
A Guide, a Comforter, bequeathed
With us to dwell.

And His that gentle voice we hear,
Soft as the breath of even,
That check each tho't, that calms each fear,
And speaks of heav'n.

And ev'ry virtue we possess,
And ev'ry vict'ry won,
And ev'ry tho't of holiness,
Are His alone.

Spirit of purity and grace,
Our weakness, pitying, see;
O make our hearts Thy dwelling-place,
And worthier Thee.

Amen.
