1 Ring, ring, beautiful bells,
Pealing far and near,
In the valleys and dells,
Loud and clear;
Summon to the house of God
All whose feet may roam abroad;
Ring, ring, beautiful bells,
Loud and clear.
Ring, ring, ring, ring!
Ring, ring, ring, ring!
Ring, ring, beautiful bells,
Loud and clear.

2 Sing, sing, little ones sing,
On this best of days;
Fill this beautiful place
With God’s praise;
Praise him for his wondrous love,
For all blessings from above,
Sing, sing, little ones sing
To God’s praise.
Sing, sing, sing, sing!
Sing, sing, sing, sing!
Sing, sing, little ones sing
To God’s praise.

3 O ye beautiful birds!
Fill with song the air;
Making melody sweet
Ev’rywhere;
Join us in our grateful lays,
Help us swell the songs of praise,
Making melody sweet,
Ev’rywhere.
Sing, sing, sing, sing!
Sing, sing, sing, sing!
Making melody sweet,
Ev’rywhere.
