Soft and sweet the bells are ringing,
From the chapel old and gray;
Sweet and soft the children singing,
Christ the Lord arose today.

Refrain

Sweetly, softly sounds the anthem,
For the stone is rolled away;
Glory, honor, give to Jesus,
On this Resurrection day.

Sweeter far than earthly music,
Since the Christmas melody,
Is this song of Easter glory,
This glad psalm of victory.

Refrain

Love’s redeeming work is finished,
Fought the fight, the victory won;
Glory, glory in the highest
To the Father and the Son.
