1 Ring, happy bells of Easter time,
The world is glad to hear your chime;
Across wide fields of melting snow
The winds of summer softly blow,
And birds and streams repeat the chime
Of Easter time, of Easter time.

Refrain:
The world is glad to hear your chime;
Ring, happy bells of Easter time!

2 Ring, happy bells of Easter time,
The world takes up your chant sublime;
The Lord is ris’n! The night of fear
Has passed away and heav’n draws near:
We breathe the air of that blest clime,
At Easter time, at Easter time. [Refrain]

3 Ring, happy bells of Easter time,
Our happy hearts give back your chime;
The Lord is ris’n! We die no more:
He opens wide the heav’nly door;
He meets us, while to Him we climb,
At Easter time, at Easter time. [Refrain]
