1 Ringing, sweetly ringing,
The cheerful Sabbath bells;
Ringing, sweetly ringing,
The cheerful Sabbath bells.
We linger a moment their call to hear,
Then haste away to our school so dear;
Over the greenwood joyous and free,
Singing with gladness, happy are we.

Refrain:
While over the distant hill
Their music is floating still,
Hear the echo, echo, echo;
Sweet Sabbath bells,
Hear the echo, echo, echo,
Sweet Sabbath bells.

2 Ringing, sweetly ringing,
Their silver chimes we love;
Ringing, sweetly ringing,
Their silver chimes we love.
A mission of peace to the heart they bear,
A welcome call to the house of prayer;
Telling of raptures, telling of rest,
Mansions of glory, tranquil and blest. [Refrain]

3 Ringing, sweetly ringing,
Those cheerful Sabbath bells;
Ringing, sweetly ringing,
Those cheerful Sabbath bells.
O! let us be grateful to God above,
Who crowneth our days with the light of love,
Bless├Ęd Redeemer, ever to Thee,
Praise from Thy children offered shall be. [Refrain]
