Ring out their cheerful, earnest chime
And bid each gathering throng
In hallowed walls keep holy time,
With heartfelt praise and song.
Ring out and let their joyful peal
Resound afar and near,
Let old and young from hill and vale
Devoutly worship here.
Ring out ye bells with joyful tale
Far over lake and lea,
Make glad our lovely native vale
As it was wont to be.
