1. 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.

2. 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.

3. 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?
