1 Soft and sweet the bells are ringing,
From the chapel old and gray
Sweet and soft the children singing,
Christ the Lord arose today.

Refrain:
Sweetly, softly sounds the anthem,
For the stone is rolled away;
Glory, honor give to Jesus,
On this Resurrection day.

2 Sweeter far than earthly music,
Since the Christmas melody,
Is this song of Easter glory,
This glad psalm of victory. [Refrain]

3 Love's redeeming work is finished,
Fought the fight, the vict'ry won;
Glory, glory in the highest
To the Father and the Son. [Refrain]
