Representative Text

1 Ring out, oh, happy Easter bells,
Fill earth and air with noisy swells,
And many tuneful lay;
Afar and near let songs of cheer,
In carols sweet the joy repeat
Of resurrection day.

Ring, sweet bells, oh, Easter bells,
Oh, happy bells, then ring, sweet bells,
Ring out, oh, happy bells.

2 Ring out, oh, happy Easter bells,
Your cheerful voice of joy impels
The human heart to praise;
Your merry rhyme of clang and chime,
With holy fire our souls inspire,
A sacrifice to raise. [Refrain]

3 Ring out, oh happy Easter bells,
To all the world your music tells
Of fairer things above;
Our songs of joy we will employ,
To praise His name and wide proclaim
The wonders of His love. [Refrain]
