The bells of Heav’n are ringing,
The bells of Heav’n are ringing,
As we go marching home,
As we go marching home.
The bells of Heav’n are ringing,
The choirs of Heav’n are singing,
The pearly gates are swinging,
As we go marching home.

The light of Heav’n is shining,
The light of Heav’n is shining,
As we go marching home,
As we go marching home.
The light of Heav’n is shining,
The shade of night’s declining,
The clouds have silver lining,
As we go marching home.

The harps of Heav’n are playing,
The harps of Heav’n are playing,
As we go marching home,
As we go marching home.
The harps of Heav’n are playing,
The heirs of Heav’n are praying,
To God their homage paying,
As we go marching home.
