Representative Text

1 The gospel bells ring joyfully
Across the land, across the sea,
Now soft and low, now loud and strong,
They chant to us a happy song.

Ring out, glad bells,
How joyfully your music tells
The blessed story of the free,
Of peace and joy and liberty.

2 The gospel bells in music tell
The story that we love so well,
Of “peace on earth, goodwill to men”:
Ring out, sweet bells, ring out again. [Refrain]

3 Ring out until the truth is heard,
That Jesus gave His life, His word,
To ransom all, both you and me—
Oh, blessed, blessed victory. [Refrain]

4 Ring out, glad gospel bells, again,
Repeat the everlasting strain,
Till, all redeemed on yonder shore,
We sing “goodwill” forevermore. [Refrain]
