1. Now we hail the joyous chime
Of Easter joy-bells ringing;
Now we hail the gladsome time
When happy hearts are singing;
When happy hearts are singing:

Bells oh ring, and glad hearts sing,
Tell the wondrous story,
To the world a message bring
Of the King of glory.

2. Oft as mercy Easter bells
Ring out their message golden;
Each measured chime in music tells
A story sweet and olden;
A story sweet and olden. [Refrain]

3. Bells of Easter earth can know,
Sweeter music never!
Ring in gladness to and fro,
Oh, ring on forever!
Oh, ring on forever! [Refrain]
