The Indian Advocate
Vol. XV. APRIL, 1903. No. 4 "Easter Bells," A Carol. Glad Easter Bells! Glad Easter Bells! We love thy tuneful chiming, The soft breeze swells, The joy it tells. While through the sky 'tis climbing. Sweet Easter Bells! Sweet Easter Bells! The fragrant flowers are tolling Their incense fair On earth and air, Where e'en your tones are rolling. 1 True Easter Bells! True Easter Bells! We love thy sacred story; 1 Our glad hearts rise Above the skies, To Jesus and His glory. Strong Easter Bells! Strong Easter Bells! O'er land and sea proclaiming, That death is dead And glory shed Where Christ, our Life, is reigning. Grand Easter Bells! Grand Easter Bells! The Chimes of Heaven are ringing, For Jesus lives And vict'ry gives, , As we His praise are singing. W'' ' Dear Easter Bells! Dear Easter Bells! Ring on when earth is ending, Till we above, In realms of love, With Saints our songs are blending. Alleluia ! t. F. dc Costa.
