Representative Text

1 We leave the world of care,
To greet one day in seven;
To join in praise and prayer,
And learn the way to heaven.
The Sabbath bells invite us all,
Faint emblem of God’s holy call.

Refrain:
Chime on, chime on,
Chime on, sweet bells, your cheerful ring
Shall tune our lips God’s praise to sing;
Chime on, sweet bells, chime on.
Chime on, chime on,
Chime on, chime on,
Chime on, sweet bells
Chime on, sweet bells,
Chime on, sweet bells,
Chime on, sweet bells,
Chime on, sweet bells, chime on.

2 We leave our books and play,
To read that Book Divine;
‘Tis there we learn the way
To joys that ne’er decline;
The music of the Sabbath bells,
How sweetly on the ear it swells!
Chime on, sweet bells, your welcome ring
Shall tune our hearts God’s praise to sing. [Refrain]

3 We leave our earthly home,
To seek that blest above,
Where loved companions come
To lift their hearts to God;
O hear with joy the sound that tells
The music of those Sabbath bells.
Chime on, sweet bells, long may you ring,
And call our hearts God’s praise to sing. [Refrain]
