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.

Tis Midnight And On Olive's Brow

William B. Tappan in 1822

William Batchelder Bradbury in 1853

A. H. M. in 1997


'Tis midnight; and on Olives' brow
The star is dimmed that lately shone:
'Tis midnight;in the garden now
The suff'ring Saviour prays alone.

'Tis midnight; and from all removed,
The Saviour wrestles lone with fears;
E'en that disciple whom He loved
Heeds not his Master's grief and tears.

'Tis midnight; and for others' guilt
The Man of Sorrows weeps in blood;
Yet He that hath in anguish knelt
Is not forsaken by His God.

'Tis midnight; and from etherplains
Is borne the song that angels know;
Un heard by mortals are the strains
That sweetly soothe the Saviour's woe.
