O, let us exalt our dear Lord and proclaim,
In songs of true gratitude, praise to His name!

Our thanks and our praises shall rise to the Lord.

Lyrics
Baptized into Thy name most holy,
O Father, Son and Holy Ghost,
I claim a place, though weak and lowly
Among Thy seed, Thy chosen host.
Immersed with Christ, I'm dead to sin;
Thy Spirit now shall live within.

My loving Father, Thou dost take me
To be henceforth Thy child and heir.
My faithful Saviour, Thou dost make me
The fruit of all Thy sorrows share.
Thou, Holy Ghost, wilt comfort me
When darkest clouds around I see.

Now I have vowed to fear and love Thee
And to obey Thee, Lord, alone;
I feel Thy Holy Spirit move me
And freely pledge my self Thine own,
Renouncing sin to keep the faith
And war with evil unto death.

Yea, all I am and love most dearly
To Thee I offer now, the whole;
O, let me make my vows sincerely;
Take full possession of my soul!
Let naught within me, naught I own
Serve any will but Thine alone.
