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
My ship casts off from earth's strand, Fare ye well!
I'm trav'ling It takes to my homeland, Fare ye well!
How joyful is my soul!
From this world I'll flee so gladly,
I am nearing to my goal.
Fare ye well, Fare ye well!

My Lord the storm is quelling, Fare ye well!
Behold Behold the sails are swelling, Fare ye well!
Farewell, O foreign lands!
From this world I'll flee so gladly,
I make haste to Christ's dear hands.
Fare ye well, Fare ye well!

This wilderness now fleeing, Fare ye well!
The Homeland's coast I'm seeing, Fare ye well!
The winds blow me t'wards home!
From this world I'll flee so gladly,
Turning t'ward my Father's Home.
Fare ye well, Fare ye well!
