1 Ring, bells, ring out the story
Of our risen Lord and king;
He hath despoiled the spoiler,
Gladly now His praises ring.

Ring! ring! Easter bells!
Ring! ring! Easter bells!
Ring! ring!
Sweetest praises to our risen king;
Ring! ring! Easter bells!
Ring! ring! ring! ring!
Praises to our risen king!

2 Ring, bells, in joyous chorus,
Give the waiting nations cheer;
Join all our hearts and voices,
Christ is risen, do not fear. [Refrain]

3 Ring, bells your sweetest music,
Christ our king ascends on high;
Again in clouds He cometh,
Jesus lives, and death shall die. [Refrain]

4 Ring, bells, He ever liveth,
Lives and reigns with God above;
Ring loud and clear His triumphs,
God is mercy, God is love. [Refrain]
