1 Ring the joy-bells, Christ has risen
He who died in human pain,
From the bondage of His prison
Breaks, to gladden earth again.
Ring the joy-bells, ring the joy-bells,
Jesus comes on earth to reign;
Ring the joy-bells, ring the joy-bells,
Jesus comes on earth to reign.

2 Ring the joy-bells of the Sabbath,
Blessèd day when He arose,
As the conqueror, in triumph,
Death and sin His vanquished foes.
Ring the joy-bells, ring the joy-bells,
Till the day of life shall close;
Ring the joy-bells, ring the joy-bells,
Till the day of life shall close.

3 Ring the joy-bells, loud and gleeful,
Sound aloud their notes of peace,
Fill the world with their vibrations
Till the strife of earth shall cease.
Ring the joy-bells, ring the joy-bells,
Let their notes be notes of peace,
Ring the joy-bells, ring the joy-bells,
Let their notes be notes of peace.

4 Ring the joy-bells, saints in glory;
Listen to the glad refrain,
Ringing forth the olden story,
How the Christ is born again.
Ring the joy-bells, ring the joy-bells,
Jesus in our hearts shall reign;
Ring the joy-bells, ring the joy-bells,
Jesus in our hearts shall reign.
