Representative Text

1 Hark! the music of the bells,
Calling us to praise and pray’r;
Clear and sweet their chiming tells
Of the joy that waits us there.

Chorus:
Hark! the bells, happy bells,
Floating on the tranquil air;
Hark! the bells, happy bells,
Calling us to the house of pray’r.

2 To the temple of the Lord
Let us haste with willing feet;
There to read His holy Word,
There to sing His praises sweet. [Chorus]

3 May Thy blessings, Lord, descend,
And to Thee our hearts we raise;
While the bells and voices blend
In a grateful song of praise. [Chorus]
