Lyrics

Exalt the Lord our God,
And worship at His feet;
His nature is all holiness,
And mercy is His seat.

When Israel was His church,
When Aaron was His priest,
When Moses cried, when Samuel prayed,
He gave His people rest.

Oft He forgave their sins,
Nor would destroy their race;
And oft He made His vengeance known
When they abused His grace.

Exalt the Lord our God,
Whose grace is still the same;
Still He’s a God of holiness,
And jealous for His name.
