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
"Speed away, speed away on thine errand of light,"
Sweet message of Christ in thy radiant flight;
The earth lies in darkness, the deep shadows fall
On sad hearts and homes. Oh, speed at our call,
Pierce the gathering clouds with thy luminous ray;
Speed away, speed away, speed away!

Speed away, speed away on thine errand of love,
Go speak to the mourners of mansions above;
To the doubting bring peace, to the weary, sweet rest;
To the homeless a glimpse of the home of the blest;
Let angels and me thy glad wonders portray;
Speed away, speed away, speed away!

Speed away, speed away, let the shout peal along,
Triumphant in faith, and melodious in song;
Go, heralds of Jesus! the message proclaim:
Christ liveth and reigneth, go forth in His Name;
"Up! onward! let nothing your mission delay."
Speed away, speed away, speed away!
