Representative Text

1 Sabbath bells are ringing, sounding loud and clear,
Calling forth the children, calling young and old;
Come and work for Jesus, pleasant duty share,
Come with us while singing, enter in the fold.

Sabbath bells are ringing,
See the children coming,
Happy hearts and voices all unite to sing;
Hark the glad bells ringing,
Hear the children singing,
Singing loud the glory of a Savior King.

2 Sabbath bells are ringing, merry birds are singing,
Bright the sun is shining, soft the balmy air;
Happy children gather, here glad tribute bringing,
To a loving Savior, who their joys wills share. [Refrain]

3 Sabbath bells are ringing, all the world rejoices,
Once again we meet, tell of Jesus’ love;
In a song of glory lift we hearts and voices
To a loving Savior, now in realms above. [Refrain]
