Lyrics

To Thee, my God and Savior, my heart exulting sings,
Rejoicing in Thy favor, almighty King of kings.
I’ll celebrate Thy glory, with all Thy saints above,
And tell the joyful story of Thy redeeming love.

Soon as the morn with roses bedecks the dewy east,
And when the sun reposes upon the ocean’s breast,
My voice in supplication, well pleasèd Thou shalt hear;
O grant me Thy salvation, and to my soul draw near.

By Thee through life supported, I pass the dangerous road,
With heavenly hosts escorted up to their bright abode;
There cast my crown before Thee, now all my conflicts o’er,
And day and night adore Thee—what can an angel more?
