Hark! I hear the sweet bells ringing,
Ringing on the evening air;
Sweetest thoughts of memory bringing,
Ever joyous, fresh and fair.

Ding, dong, ding, dong,
Sing the old refrain;
Ding, dong, ding, dong,
Ring your sweetest chime.

Ring, ye bells, your sweetest measure,
How I love your tones to hear;
And my heart is full of pleasure,
As they fall upon my ear.
