74. The Sabbath Bell

1 Borne on the winds of heaven, echoing far and near,
Carrying notes of comfort, carrying sounds of cheer,
Telling of praise and promise, sweetly the tidings swell,
Sending the call to the hearts of all in the song of the Sabbath Bell.

Ring, ring, ring, ring,
Honor and glory your sweet tones tell;
So ring, ring, ring, ring,
Our beautiful Sabbath Bell.

2 Giving the invitation, bidding us come today,
Calling us all together, here in God’s house to pray,
Leaving the long week’s duties, pleasure and cares as well,
Coming to meet at the Master’s feet at the call of the Sabbath Bell. [Refrain]

3 Gladly we hear it ringing, gladly its call obey,
Worshipping here together, keeping God’s holy day;
Long may the message greet us, long may the sweet chimes tell,
Stories of praise throughout endless days, thro’ the voice of the Sabbath Bell. [Refrain]
