184. Bells of Easter

1 Bells of Easter, sweetly ring,
"Christ is King, Christ is King";
With your silvery voices say,
"Christ arose today!"

Ring our precious song anew!
Ring your story sweet and true,
Bells of Easter, ring and say,
"Christ arose today!"

2 Ring the word the angel gives,
"Jesus lives, Jesus lives!"
Ring again that happy lay,
"Christ arose today!" [Refrain]

3 Ring until the whole world knows,
"Christ arose, Christ arose!"
Send the tidings far away,
"Christ arose today!" [Refrain]
