Lyrics

The bells, the bells,
They ring this Easter morning,
The bells, the bells,
To peal a message sweet;
The bells, the bells,
Their tones, the earth adorning,
The bells, the bells,
A risen king to greet.

Refrain

Hear the ringing and the singing
Of the Easter bells;
List the rhyming of the chiming,
Happy news it swells.
Hallelujah, hallelujah,
Greet the risen King;
The bells, the bells,
The joyous Easter bells.

Ring out, ring out,
While earth is filled with wonder,
Ring out, ring out,
Far o’er the mountain height.
Ring out, ring out,
The grave is torn asunder;
Ring out, ring out,
Send forth the Easter light.

Refrain

Ye bells, ye bells,
O tell the Savior risen;
Ye bells, ye bells,
O tell what angels say;
Ye bells, ye bells,
For broken is the prison;
Ye bells, ye bells,
The Lord arose today.
