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
The twilight shadows 'round me fall,
And night comes creeping on;
But Thou, dear Lord, art ever near,
My Day when day is gone.
Thy wings in love o'er-shadow be,
The night with Thee is light;
I rest in Thee, Thou changeless One,
And wait the dawning bright.

My life is but a fleeting day,
My race, how quickly run!
The dawn and noonday glory fade
Into the setting sun.
A stranger and a pilgrim here,
With falt'ring feet I roam;
Lord, let Thy glory light the way
That leads me to my home.

By faith I see the better Land,
Where falls no earthly night,
Where Thou dost shine, a radiant Sun,
The Everlasting Light.
Then help me, Lord, to walk with Thee,
And keep me Thine alway,
That from my sleep I may awake
Unto the perfect Day.
