Church Bells
Tresillian, Cornwall


Chime out, ye bells of beauty,
And echo far and wide,
The blessèd joyful tidings,
’Tis merry Eastertide.


Ring, ring your sweetest music,
With merry music ring,
Till every chime proclaim it,
The Lord, the risen King.

Chime out, ye bells of glory,
With love in every tone,
And let your joyful pealing
Ascend to yonder throne.


Chime out, ye bells of mercy,
Christ lives, the Crucified,
He lives, our dear Redeemer,
Proclaim it far and wide.


Chime out, ye bells of beauty,
And ring with power today,
The tidings of salvation,
Till all the call obey.
