Representative Text

1 I love to hear the Sabbath bells
Ring out their music sweet,
And to the hallowed house of prayer
Their welcome call repeat.

Sabbath bells! Dear Sabbath bells!
In sweet accord their voice blend;
Sabbath bells! Dear Sabbath bells!
They bid our thoughts to heav’n ascend.

2 They bid us lift our songs of praise
To Him who reigns above,
And offer in His earthly courts
The tribute of our love. [Refrain]

3 The pleading of the Sabbath bells
We willingly obey,
And hither come with grateful hearts
To worship God today. [Refrain]
