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.

Komm zur wahren Heimat!

Lyrics
Up in Heav'n, where trees are blooming,
Standing on the crystal shore,
Is the pilgrim's truest homeland,
Up above the starlit sky.
Up in Heav'n the Holy Chorus
Brings their praise unto the Lamb
Oh, how much I long to be there,
In the Homeland, beautiful.

Here, below, I'm still a stranger
Living still among the world.
Up above in God's own shelter
Is my truest Fatherland.
How my heart is looking forward
Ever by my Lord to be
With the overcomers standing
Free from sin and death and pain.

Oh, Lord Jesus, help my ending;
True and steadfast ever be.
With Thy help all overcoming,
Take me, then, in love to Thee.
How my soul will be rejoicing,
There to face the crystal throne,
With the joyful millions singing
Praise to Thee, God's only Son!
