74. Chime On Sweet Bells

1 Into Thy presence blest,
Dear Lord, we cheerful come;
Sweet peace pervades Thy house,
This truly is our home;
The bells’ soft accents rise and fall
Upon the air, inviting all
Thy house to seek, Thy love to share,
E’er guarded by Thy watchful care.

Chime on, chime on,
Chime on sweet bells, chime on,
Chime on, chime on,
Chime on sweet bells, chime on.

2 ‘Tis here we gather strength,
For each oncoming day;
‘Tis here we banish grief,
And anxious care away;
With hearts made glad we list the call,
Of chiming bells, entreating all
To find surcease of sorrow here,
And comfort from Thy presence dear. [Chorus]
