Full Text

1 Ring from your steeple, bells of gladness!
This is the day the world was born;
God's voice rang out across the darkness,
light filled the sky that primal morn.

2 Ring from your steeple, bells of victory!
This is the day death's sting was drawn;
God's voice rang out, the tomb was empty,
hope sprang alive that Easter morn.

3 Ring from your steeple, bells of power!
This is the day when, at the dawn,
God's voice rang out through wind and fire,
fresh came the Spirit on that morn.

4 Ring from your steeple, bells of heaven!
This is the day when none shall mourn;
God's voice rings out this one-in-seven,
joy fills the church this Sunday morn.
