Keep the heart bells ringing

Representative Text

1 Keep the heart-bells ringing as you travel onward,
Up the rough and rugged road of life;
For their music sweet will cheer you when aweary,
It will lighten toil, and sweeten strife.

Refrain:
Keep the heart-bells ringing
Fill the world with singing
Until echoes answer everywhere;
They will color duty
With a rainbow beauty,
And a soul may rescue from despair.

2 Keep the heart-bells ringing when the path is lonely,
When the threatening sky is cold and gray;
They will give to every cloud a silver lining
That will help to drive the storm away. [Refrain]

3 Keep the heart-bells ringing, for their cheering music
May be heard by someone fainting near;
He will listen, and his spirit will awaken,
As their cadence falls upon his ear. [Refrain]
