1 Soft and sweet the bells are ringing,
From the chapel old and gray
Sweet and soft the children singing,
Christ the Lord arose today.

Sweetly, softly sounds the anthem,
For the stone is rolled away;
Glory, honor give to Jesus,
On this Resurrection day.

2 Sweeter far than earthly music,
Since the Christmas melody,
Is this song of Easter glory,
This glad psalm of victory. [Refrain]

3 Love's redeeming work is finished,
Fought the fight, the vict'ry won;
Glory, glory in the highest
To the Father and the Son. [Refrain]
