Ring out, oh, hap­py East­er bells,
Fill earth and air with noi­sy swells,
And many tune­ful lay;
Afar and near let songs of cheer,
In ca­rols sweet the joy re­peat
Of re­sur­rect­ion day.


Ring, sweet bells, oh, East­er bells,
Oh, hap­py bells, then ring, sweet bells,
Ring out, oh, hap­py bells.

Ring out, oh, hap­py East­er bells,
Your cheer­ful voice of joy im­pels
The hu­man heart to praise;
Your mer­ry rhyme of clang and chime,
With ho­ly fire our souls in­spire,
A sac­ri­fice to raise.


Ring out, oh hap­py East­er bells,
To all the world your mu­sic tells
Of fair­er things above;
Our songs of joy we will em­ploy,
To praise His name and wide pro­claim
The won­ders of His love.
