Sweet Easter bells a-chime

Full Text

1 Sweet Easter bells a-chime,
Ring in the glorious time,
When o’er His foes the Lord arose
In majesty sublime;
Let earth the joyful tidings speed,
And shout, and shout,
The Lord is ris’n indeed.

Refrain:
Oh, Easter bells, ring on, ring on!
Oh, Easter bells, ring on, ring on!
With tuneful sound the world around,
Ring on sweet bells,
Ring on, ring on, ring on!

2 Ring in the reign of peace,
When sin and conflict cease,
And while we sing and praise our king,
May love and faith increase;
Let earth the joyful tidings speed,
And shout, and shout,
The Lord is ris’n indeed. [Refrain]

3 Ring out Jehovah’s praise,
A peal of triumph raise,
Ring sweet and clear, ring far and near,
To hail this day of days;
Let earth the joyful tidings speed,
And shout, and shout,
The Lord is ris’n indeed. [Refrain]
