1 The bells, the bells,
They ring this Easter morning,
The bells, the bells,
To peal a message sweet;
The bells, the bells,
Their tones, the earth adorning,
The bells, the bells,
A risen King to greet.

Hear the ringing and the singing
Of the Easter bells;
List the rhyming of the chiming,
Happy news it swells.
Hallelujah, hallelujah,
Greet the risen King;
The bells, the bells,
The joyous Easter bells.

2 Ring out, ring out,
While earth is filled with wonder,
Ring out, ring out,
Far o’er the mountain height.
Ring out, ring out,
The grave is torn asunder;
Ring out, ring out,
Send forth the Easter light. [Refrain]

3 Ye bells, ye bells,
O tell the Saviour risen;
Ye bells, ye bells,
O tell what angels say;
Ye bells, ye bells,
For broken is the prison;
Ye bells, ye bells,
The Lord arose today. [Refrain]
