O the Easter bells are gladly ringing,
Let the whole world join the happy lay,
Let the hills and vales break forth in singing,
Christ, the Lord of Life, is ris'n today.

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Let the whole world join the happy lay,
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Christ, the Lord of Life, is ris'n today.

O the Easter bells are gladly ringing,
Hear the shouts along the King's highway;
Songs of praise the children, too, are singing,
Christ, the Lord of Life, is ris'n today.

For the night of death has passed away,
Lo! the gates of morn are open swinging,
Christ, the Lord of Life, is ris'n today.
