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
Soft as the voice of an angel
Breathing a lesson unheard,
Hope with a gentle persuasion,
Whispers her comforting word.
Wait till the darkness is over,
Wait till the tempest is done,
Hope for the sunshine tomorrow,
After the shower is gone.

If in the dusk of the twilight
Dim be the region afar,
Will not the deepening darkness
Brighten the glimmering star?
Then when the night is upon us,
Why should the heart sink away?
When the dark midnight is over,
Watch for the breaking of day.

Hope, as an anchor so steadfast
Rends the dark vail for the soul,
Whither the Master has entered,
Robbing the grave of its goal.
Come, then, O, come, glad fruition,
Come to my sad, weary heart
Come, O Thou blest Hope of glory!
Never, O, never depart!

Chorus:
Whispering hope,
Oh, how welcome thy voice,
Making my heart in its sorrow rejoice.
