1 Like a chime of silver bells
In the darkness ringing,
Comes a voice that ever tells
Of the Shepherd’s care;
To the wand’rer from the fold,
Love is ever bringing,
Tidings from the gates of gold,
Of a welcome there.

"Follow Me," O hear the Shepherd saying,
Seek the door to pastures ever fair;
Heed, O heed thy Savior’s tender pleading;
Follow Him and find a welcome there.

2 Lost one, will you close your ears
To the magic story,
That can charm away your fears
When earth’s joys depart?
Shall the spell of evil hide
From your eyes the glory,
That forever will abide,
With the pure in heart? [Refrain]

3 Lo! the tempter doth deceive,
Luring you to sadness;
Then he mocks you while you grieve,
Pointing to despair;
From his fetters break away,
Seek the path of gladness;
Spurn the pleasures that decay,
Of their sting beware. [Refrain]
