Lyrics

Bells of Easter, sweetly ring,
Christ is King, Christ is King;
With your silvery voices say,
Christ arose today!

Refrain

Ring our precious song anew!
Ring your story sweet and true,
Bells of Easter, ring and say,
Christ arose today!

Ring the word the angel gives,
Jesus lives, Jesus lives!
Ring again that happy lay,
Christ arose today!

Refrain

Ring until the whole world knows,
Christ arose, Christ arose!
Send the tidings far away,
Christ arose today!
