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.

I Love To Steal Awhile Away

Lyrics
I love to steal awhile away
From ev'ry cumb'ring care,
And spend the hours of setting day
In humble grateful prayer.

I love in solitude to shed
The penitential tear,
And all His promises to plead,
Where none but God can hear.

I love to think on mercies past,
And future good implore,
And all my cares and sorrows cast
On Himm whom I adore.

I love by faith to take a view
Of brighter scenes in heav'n,
The prospect doth my strength renew,
While here by tempests driv'n.

Thus, when life's toilsome day is o'er,
May its departing ray
Be calm as this impressive hour,
And lead to endless day.
