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
Arise, my song to Christ the King,
From whom the fount of life did spring
When from the grave He did arise
To sever death's deceiving ties!
Hallelujah!

Earth trembled with His wondrous might;
From heaven came an angel bright.
The stone was moved from its repose
When Jesus Christ from death arose.
Hallelujah!

And clothed in glory, bright and fair,
Which He eternally did wear,
He leads beneath His Shepherd's rod
Freed pris'ners to the House of God.
Hallelujah!

The mighty foe still seeks in vain
Us in his power to retain.
The blood of Jesus makes us free,
And justified by faith are we.
Hallelujah!

The victory He has achieved
For all who have in Christ believed.
Flesh, Satan, death have lost their sting.
Oh, come and choose this heav'nly King!
Hallelujah!

We know that Satan's yoke is shame,
And strive to work in Jesus' name;
Reborn by faith, we go our way,
And sin we never shall obey.
Hallelujah!

As Jesus died for all our sin,
So all His own new life begin;
Through baptism we renewed shall be,
And clothed in immortality.
Hallelujah!

Thus by this Spirit-birth may we,
Lord Jesus, have a part in Thee
And show ourselves obedient, Lord,
In love and faith unto Thy Word.
Hallelujah!
