Representative Text

1 Easter bells today are ringing;
Easter songs the world is singing;
Easter garlands we are bringing
To the gracious risen Lord.

Chorus:
Ring, O bells, the Easter story;
Ring of Jesus and his glory;
Ring of life eternal given;
Ring of mansions bright in heaven.
Ring of beauty bright and vernal;
Ring of joy that is supernal;
Ring of hope that is eternal;
Easter bells, ring out today.

2 Ring the news to ev’ry nation;
Sing the songs of God’s salvation;
Bring your heart’s supreme oblation
To the gracious risen Lord. [Chorus]

3 Ring of beauty, bright and vernal;
Ring of joy that is supernal;
Ring the hope that is eternal;
Easter bells, ring out today. [Chorus]
