Sacred Songs and Solos Lyrics
Hymn No.148

First Line: Soft and sweet the bells are ringing,

Soft and sweet the bells are ringing
From the steeple old and grey;
Sweet and soft the children singing-
Christ the Lord arose to-day !

Sweetly, softly sounds the anthem,
For the stone is rolled away;
Glory, honour give to Jesus
On this resurrection day !

2 Sweeter far than earthly music
Since the Christmas melody,
Is this song of Easter glory,
This glad psalm of victory.

3 Love's redeeming work is finished,
Fought the fight, the victory won;
Glory, glory in the highest !
To the Father and the Son.
