Representative Text

1 Merry bells are ringing thro’ the earth again,
Bringing joyful tidings to the sons of men;
Lo! the grave is empty where the Savior lay,
Angels at the dawning rolled the stone away.

Refrain:
Ring the merry bells,
Ring the merry bells,
Ring the merry bells,
Ring, ring, ring!
O ring the merry bells,
Ring the merry bells,
Ring the merry bells,
Ring, ring, ring!
O ring the joyful tidings,
Swell the glad refrain;
Christ has burst the bonds of death!
He lives again.

2 Merry bells are ringing! Love’s great work is done;
Christ hath fought the battle and the vict’ry won;
He arose in triumph from the darksome tomb,
Now it shines in splendor, gone is all its gloom. [Refrain]

3 Merry bells are ringing! shout! ye saints of joy!
Let the praise of Jesus ev’ry tongue employ;
Ring the merry chiming bells from shore to shore,
Christ is Royal Victor now, and evermore. [Refrain]
