Now the bells are ringing,
Come and go with me;
Join with us in singing
This our merry glee.

Come, come, come, come,
Hear the chiming bell,
Bim, bom, bim, bom,
bim, bom, bell.

List the joyful pealing
Stealing thro’ the air;
Oh, what joyful tidings
It so sweetly bears.

Each one now to duty,
Linger not behind;
Be here in your places
When the old bells chime.
