Representative Text

1 Like silver bells at eventide,
Out-ringing far o’er life’s rough sea;
To cheer my heart when tempest tried,
The voice of Jesus reaches me.

Like bells, sweet bells,
Sounding across life’s sea;
Like bells, sweet bells,
The voice of Jesus reaches me.

2 When dark the night upon the deep,
Imperiled tho’ my bark may be;
By raging storms that round me sweep,
His voice is strength and hope to me. [Refrain]

3 When battling with the surge of sin,
Tho’ waves of doubt around me beat;
The fight I cannot fail to win,
While He is near with love to greet. [Refrain]

4 When I might sink in deep despair,
Where only He can set me free;
My Saviour comes my load to bear,
His word is life and light to me. [Refrain]
