Full Text

1 Over hill and valley ring the blossom bells,
On the breezes wafted how their gladness swells,
Summer days have come at last their ringing tells,
Ring, oh, ring be blossom bells.

Blossom bells, ring, oh, ring,
Join the chorus with the birds that sing;
Let your chime sweetly tell
Of the joy that fills each blossom bell.
Winter’s gloom now is past,
Summer time has come with joy at last;
Blossom bells ring your praise
On this happy day of days.

2 Swinging, softly swinging in the sunlit air,
How their cheerful chiming echoes ev’rywhere;
Welcome is the message which to us they bear,
Ring, oh, ring be blossom bells. [Refrain]

3 Joyfully our hearts the happy strain repeat,
In glad measure singing with the blossoms sweet;
Praise and honor bringing to the Saviour’s feet,
Ring, oh, ring be blossom bells. [Refrain]
