1 Ring, joyful bells, from far and near,
Proclaim the sweet old story,
That all who love the Savior here
Shall dwell with Him in glory;
The path is here with danger strewn,
If form His side we wander,
But in that land there are no thorns;
There’s beauty over yonder.

Ring, ring, sweet bells, sweet chiming bells,
Ring forth the tidings to the world,
There’s beauty over yonder.

2 Ring, joyful bells from morn till night,
Tell all that Christ is pleading,
From over in that home so bright
He calls, but few are heeding;
We dream about the other side,
In doubt and woe we ponder
We need not fear to cross the tide;
There’s beauty over yonder. [Refrain]

3 Ring, joyful bells o’er land and sea,
You music gently pleading,
Till into hearts that doubt, there’ll be
Sweet thoughts of love oft stealing.
Ring out the story of the cross,
Of Christ we will grow fonder;
Tho’ earth may fade, there is no loss,
There’s beauty over yonder. [Refrain]
