How Sweetly Chime the Sabbath Bells

How sweetly chime the Sabbath bells - the vales and hills resound.

We gather in God’s house this day, that glory may abound.

The gospel light is flowing free - our failing strength renews.

Lift up our hearts to seek Thy face - shed Thy refreshing dews.

We come to worship Thee, Thy Holy Name to praise

and join the ransomed throng on this, Thy Sabbath day.

How beautiful Thy house, O, God - a taste of heaven above,

where evermore we’ll sing Thy praise and glory in Thy love.

Come now and ring those Sabbath bells, it’s time to gather.

Call the people to sing and pray together.
