1 Ring the bells of heaven! there is joy today
For a soul returning from the wild!
See! the Father meets him out upon the way,
Welcoming His weary, wand'ring child.
Glory! glory! how the angels sing;
Glory! glory! how the loud harps ring!
'Tis the ransomed army, like a mighty sea,
Pealing forth the anthem of the free!
2 Ring the bells of heaven! there is joy today,
For the wand'rer now is reconciled;
Yes, a soul is rescued from his sinful way,
And is born anew a ransomed child. (Chorus)
3 Ring the bells of heaven! spread the feast today!
Angels, swell the glad triumphant strain!
Tell the joyful tidings, bear it far away!
For a precious soul is born again. (Chorus)
