Ring the Bells of Heaven

Verse 1:
Ring the bells of heaven! there is joy today,
For a soul, returning from the wild;
See! the Father meets him out upon the way,
Welcoming His weary, wand’ring child.

Refrain:
Glory! glory! how the angels sing,
Glory! glory! how the loud harps ring;
‘Tis the ransomed army, like a mighty sea,
Pealing forth the anthem of the free.

Verse 2:
Ring the bells of heaven! there is joy today,
For the wanderer now is reconciled;
Yes, a soul is rescued from his sinful way,
And is born anew a ransomed child.

Verse 3:
Ring the bells of heaven! spread the feast today,
Angels, swell the glad triumphant strain!
Tell the joyful tidings! bear it far away!
For a precious soul is born again.

Rev.Wm.O. Cushing/Geo.F. Root
