Sweet Easter bells

On mountain height, by peaceful shores,
O&#;er sunny meads, in shaded dells;
Awake, your sacred echoes, wake,
Ring out your chimes, sweet Easter bells!
Let humble fane and lofty dome
Each answer each in tuneful swells,
O&#;er every temple to His praise,
Ring loud and clear sweet Easter bells.
