Full Text

1 Sweet are the bells of the morning chiming,
Sweet the hour of prayer and song;
Join, children, join in the songs of gladness,
Praises sweet to God belong.

Refrain:
Hark! how the angel choirs are singing, singing
Shining host their strains prolong;
Join, children, join in the songs of gladness,
Praises sweet to God belong.

2 Fair are the flowers in the spring time blooming;
God hath spread their beauty there;
Sweeter by far is the love of Jesus,
While we seek His face in prayer. [Refrain]

3 Sweet are the bells of the morning chiming;
Voices mingling with the strain
Tell how the Lord, in the bright, glad morning,
Rose from death, in heaven to reign. [Refrain]
