Charles H. Gabriel (1856–1932)


Hark! the East­er bells are peal­ing
Loud and clear their tune­ful lay;
Wake, O earth, to joy and glad­ness,
Christ the Lord is ris’n to­day.
Send the ech­oes swift­ly fly­ing
Where the gloomy sha­dows lie;
Jesus lives, O bless­èd sto­ry!
We shall reign with Him on high.


Ring, ring, ring
Thro’ the East­er light and glo­ry;
Ring, ring, ring,
Telling out the joy­ful sto­ry;
Ring, ring, ring
To the skies your glad­ness voic­ing;
Ring, ring, ring
Set the whole wide world re­joicing.

Hark! the East­er bells are peal­ing
Like a thou­sand harps of gold;
Swells afar their sil­ver chim­ing,
Welcome news each strain doth hold.
Look to Hea­ven’s op­en por­tals,
Cease your tears, for­get to sigh;
He who slept with­in the gar­den
Lives again no more to die.


Hark! the East­er bells are peal­ing,
In a me­lo­dy sub­lime,
Risen now to life im­mor­tal,
Hail the King of East­er-time.

Praise Him! ov­er death vic­to­ri­ous,
Shout His name with sweet ac­cord,
All His might and pow’r con­fess­ing,
Risen Christ, as­cend­ed Lord.
