Representative Text

1 The pealing bells are sounding,
With gladsome voices clear;
The echoes loud resounding,
Tell Sabbath day is here.

O ring ye bells, ye pealing bells,
Ring out with voices clear;
With glorious swells your echo tells
That Sabbath day is here;
With glorious swells your echo tells
That Sabbath day is here.

2 The day of gladness pealing,
From toil the hands are free,
The blessed news revealing,
That hearts can happy be. [Refrain]

3 O let us hear the ringing,
Let love of Christ abound;
For He salvation’s bringing,
To all who heed the sound. [Refrain]

4 The tho’ts of love we’re learning,
Each passing Sabbath day;
Give to the heart that’s yearning
To know the righteous way. [Refrain]
