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
From the cross of Christ uplifted,
Shines an everlasting light,
By its rays the clouds are rifted,
Till the homeland is in sight.

Ev'ry storm that gathers o'er us,
Adds new luster to its ray;
And the cares that rise before us
In its radiance pass away.

Tho' the tempest 'round me rages,
By its light my way is sure,
And thro'oust the sweep of ages
It, unshaken, shall endure.

Chorus:
Blessed light, light divine,
To the world thy rays are streaming;
Hallow'd light, light of love,
From the cross of Christ is beaming,
O thou bright and shining light gleam on, gleam on,
To guide the weary wand'rer in the night,
Gleam on, gleam on.
