1 The bells of peace swell out their anthems
In the heart where Jesus lives;
A melody of joy is ringing
For the life immortal which He gives.

Refrain:
The bells of peace are ringing, ringing, ringing,
The bells of peace are ringing their melody of love;
The bells of peace are ringing, ringing, ringing,
They chime the praises of the Prince of Peace who reigns above.

2 The bells of peace ring out their gladness
To the lonely, broken heart;
Their song is heard in vales of sadness,
And they bid our tears and sighs depart. [Refrain]

3 The bells of peace ring out their story,
Where the King of Peace abides;
My soul is filled with wondrous glory,
For within my heart He now resides. [Refrain]
