If you know where to get a good pho­to of How­ard (head & shoul­ders, at least 200×300 pix­els),



To and fro the church bells swing,
In the stee­ple high;
Hear them while they loud­ly sing
Underneath the sky.


Ding, dong, ding,
The great bells ring,
Calling This is Sun­day morn­ing;
Ding, dong, ding,
Ding, dong, ding,

The great bells ring;
Hear them loud­ly sing­ing in the morn­ing.

Come to church, they seem to say,
’Tis the hour of pray­er;
Come, and wor­ship God to­day
In His tem­ple fair.


Let me, like the bells above,
Never wea­ry grow,
Telling of the Lord I love,
So the world may know.
