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
Dear comrade, you're facing the right and the wrong,
The tempter to sin would allure, (would allure,)
He'd blind you and weaken the life that is strong;
Turn away and thus keep your soul pure.

Your duty lies out on the road that is straight,
Some crosses each pilgrim must bear; (he must bear;)
The throng would delay you until 'tis too late,
Turn away and seek Jesus in pray'r.

This life is so short and there's so much to do,
If victory's crown we would win, (we would win,)
Each day we must bravely to duty be true,
Turn away from temptation and sin.

The tempter is striving to call some away,
From mercy and pardon and love, (God's true Love,)
O follow him not, for he leadeth astray,
Turn away and seek Heaven above.

Chorus:
O heed not the tempter don't ever begin,
(O don't begin)
Lest wrong should win;
(Lest over your spirit the evil should win,)
Turn away, turn away, turn away, turn away,
Turn away from temptation and sin.
