    And this be the vocation fit,
    For which the founder fashioned it;
    High, high above earth's life, earth's labor
    E'en to the heaven's blue vault to soar.
    To hover as the thunder's neighbor,
    The very firmament explore.
    To be a voice as from above
    Like yonder stars so bright and clear,
    That praise their Maker as they move,
    And usher in the circling year.
    Tun'd be its metal mouth alone
    To things eternal and sublime.
    And as the swift wing'd hours speed on
    May it record the flight of time!

The bells themselves are the best of preachers,
Their brazen lips are learned teachers,
From their pulpits read more

The bells themselves are the best of preachers,
Their brazen lips are learned teachers,
From their pulpits of stone, in the upper air,
Sounding aloft, without crack or flaw,
Shriller than trumpets under the Law,
Now a sermon and now a prayer.

Ring out old shapes of foul disease;
Ring out the narrowing lust of gold;
Ring out the thousand wars of old,
Ring in the thousand years of peace.

Seize the loud, vociferous fells, and
Clashing, clanging to the pavement
Hurl them from their windy tower!

Bell, thou soundest merrily,
When the bridal party
To the church doth hie!
Bell, read more

Bell, thou soundest merrily,
When the bridal party
To the church doth hie!
Bell, thou soundest solemnly,
When, on Sabbath morning,
Fields deserted lie!

He heard the convent bell,
Suddenly in the silence ringing
For the service of noonday.

The vesper bell from far
That seems to mourn for the expiring day.
