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
'Twas on that dark, that doleful night,
When all the powers of darkness rose
Against the Son of God's delight,
And friends betrayed Him to His foes:

Before the mournful scene began,
He took the bread, and blessed, and brake:
What love through all His actions ran!
What wondrous words of grace He spake!

"This is My body broke for sin;
Receive and eat the living food:"
Then took the cup and blessed the wine,–
"'Tis the new covenant in My blood."

"Do this," He said, "till time shall end,
In memory of your dying Friend;
Meet at My table, and record
The love of your departed Lord."

Jesus! Thy feast we celebrate;
We show Thy death, we sing Thy name,
Till Thou return, and we shall eat
The marriage supper of the Lamb.
