    Verse 1
    Ring the bells of heaven! there is joy today,
    For a soul returning from the wild!
    See! the Father meets Him out upon the way,
    Welcoming His weary, wandering child.

    Chorus 1
    Glory! glory! how the angels sing;
    Glory! glory! how the loud harps ring!
    'Tis the ransomed army, like a mighty sea,
    Pealing forth the anthem of the free.

    Verse 2
    Ring the bells of heaven! there is joy today,
    For the wanderer now is reconciled;
    Yes, a soul is rescued from his sinful way,
    And is born a new a ransomed child.

    Chorus 1
    Glory! glory! how the angels sing;
    Glory! glory! how the loud harps ring!
    'Tis the ransomed army, like a mighty sea,
    Pealing forth the anthem of the free.

    Verse 3
    Ring the bells of heaven! spread the feast today!
    Angels, swell the glad triumphant strain!
    Tell the joyful tidings, bear it far away,
    For a precious soul is born again.

    Chorus 1
    Glory! glory! how the angels sing;
    Glory! glory! how the loud harps ring!
    'Tis the ransomed army, like a mighty sea,
    Pealing forth the anthem of the free.
