Representative Text

1 Sabbath bells are chiming, far and near,
Hear their mellow music, sweet and clear;
Ringing forth an invitation,
Unto ev’ry tribe and nation:
“Come and seek the great salvation,”
Ring the Sabbath bells.

Sabbath bells, Blessed bells,
Ever sweetly, sweetly chime,
Peal your notes of joy sublime;
Sabbath bells, Blessed bells,
Evermore the Lord extol;
O Sabbath bells, Blessed bells.

2 Sabbath bells are pealing on the air,
Sending consolation ev’rywhere;
Unto those in deepest sorrow,
Who can consolation borrow,
From the Lord, today, tomorrow,
Ring the Sabbath bells. [Refrain]

3 Sabbath bells are singing, hear their song,
Wafted on the breezes, sweet and strong;
Hear the anthem glad and cheery,
Giving rest unto the weary,
And new joys to pathways dreary,
Ring the Sabbath bells. [Refrain]
