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
We would see Jesus— for the shadows lengthen
Across this little landscape of our life;
We would see Jesus, our weak faith to strengthen
For the last weariness— the final strife.

We would see Jesus— the great Rock foundation,
Whereon our feet were set with sov'reign grace;
Not life, nor death, with all their agitation,
Can thence remove us, if we see His face.

We would see Jesus— other lights are paling,
Which for long years we have rejoiced to see;
The blessings of our pilgrimage are failing;
We would not mourn them, for we go to Thee.

We would see Jesus— this is all we're needing,
Strength, joy and willingness come with the sight;
We would see Jesus, dying, risen, pleading;
Then welcome, day! and farewell, mortal night!
