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
For the homeland's peaceful stillness
Yearns my longing weary heart!
There awaits for me the fullness
Of pure joy without a smart!

In that home dwells peace and comfort,
Gifts the world cannot bestow,
Which the Seraph's highest chorus
In delight and rev'rence know.

In that homeland dwells the rapture
Which no mortal heart conceives,
Which, eternal, as its giver
Lasting joys to pure hearts gives.

Homeward from my pilgrim journey,
To my homeland would I go!
Where above its open portals
Golden stars in radiance glow!

Chorus:
For the homeland's peaceful stillness
Yearns my longing weary heart!
My weary heart!
My weary heart!
For the homeland!
For the homeland!
