1. Beautiful bells of Eden fair,
Chiming at eve on the calm, still air,
Lifting the soul with its toil oppressed,
Into the vales of the pure and blessed.

Sweet, beautiful bells;
That oft in a dream I hear,
Welcome the message they bring to me,
Over the waves of the crystal sea.

2. Beautiful bells of Eden bright,
Murmuring on thro’ the hush of night,
Telling my soul of the friends I love,
Gathered and safe in their home above. [Refrain]

3. Beautiful bells of Eden chime,
Softly they breathe in their tones sublime;
Echo of joy from a white-robed throng,
Praising the Lord in a world of song. [Refrain]
