Representative Text

From out the safe port where the dear Father dwells,
Come ringing the tones of the sweet harbor bells,
While life’s stormy billows relentlessly roll,
Into a safe harbor they’re guiding my soul.

Chorus:
Ring out harbor bells!
Ring out harbor bells!
Ring out harbor bells,
You will guide us aright!
Your chiming and ringing the sweet story tells,
Of heaven and home ring and chime, harbor bells!

I hear the sweet chiming wherever I roam,
They say to me softly, “This way, child, is home.”
Whenever temptation’s sweet wooing is heard,
Above it the harbor bells ring thro’ the word.

When dark clouds of sorrow rise over the day,
Obscuring the light of Hope’s bright cheering ray,
The harbor bells ring thro’ the spirit’s sweet voice,
And chime thro’ the darkness, “Trust Him and rejoice.”
