The Easter bells are ringing,
A message sweet and low—
As to and fro they’re swinging;
From out the long ago.

Refrain

Chiming bells are ringing,
Ringing, ringing,
Chiming bells are ringing,
Ringing sweet and clear;
Chiming bells are ringing,
Ringing, ringing,
Chiming bells, chiming bells,
Ringing sweet and clear.

The silvery notes far swelling,
Fall sweetly on my ear
As once again they’re telling,
The story ever dear.

Refrain

Now softly, softly dying,
In silence drifts away,
The wondrous news so blessèd,
The Lord arose today.
