    Hark, how chimes the passing bell!
    There's no music to a knell;
    All the other sounds we hear,
    Flatter, and but cheat our ear.
    This doth put us still in mind
    That our flesh must be resigned,
    And, a general silence made,
    The world be muffled in a shade.
    [Orpheus' lute, as poets tell,
    Was but moral of this bell,
    And the captive soul was she,
    Which they called Eurydice,
    Rescued by our holy groan,
    A loud echo to this tone.]

They have tones that touch and search

While the steeples are loud in their joy,
To the tune of the bells' ring-a-ding,
Let us chime in a peal, one and all,
For we all should be able to sing Hullah baloo.

Hear the sledges with the bells,
Silver bells!
What a world of merriment their melody foretells!

Hear the sledges with the bells,
Silver bells!
What a world of merriment their melody foretells!
How they tinkle, tinkle, tinkle,
In the icy air of night,
While the stars that oversprinkle
All the Heavens seem to twinkle
With a crystalline delight:
Keeping time, time, time,
In a sort of Runic rhyme
To the tintinnabulation that so musically wells
From the bells, bells, bells, bells,
Bells, bells, bells--
From the jingling and the tingling of the bells.

That all-softening, overpowering knell,
The tocsin of the soul--the dinner bell.

The cheerful Sabbath bells, wherever heard,
Strike pleasant on the sense, most like the voice
Of one, read more

The cheerful Sabbath bells, wherever heard,
Strike pleasant on the sense, most like the voice
Of one, who from the far-off hills proclaims
Tidings of good to Zion.
