Blithely from the Moated Churchyard

Blithely from the moated churchyard
Ring the clear-voiced bells this morn;
While across the wavy landscape,
Far away the mists are borne.
Pass away, ye clouds of sadness,
Every selfish care depart;
Grateful thoughts, and thoughts of gladness,
Ring from every Christian heart.
