"THE BELLS"

Refrain 1
I hear the bells, I hear the bells.
I hear the bells, I hear the bells.

Verse 1
Someone cares for me when nights are long,
Someone loves me even when I'm wrong.
Now I have faith in love instead of fear.
-Now I have a song, heavenly music I hear.

Chorus
The bells are ringing in my heart,---
The message echoes in my ears,---
That God has chosen my life,---
And made its meaning oh so clear.
The bells are ringing in my heart,---
Their song of love will never end,---
For every time I speak of this great love,
I hear the bells again.

Refrain 2
I hear the bells [I hear the bells],
I hear the bells [I hear the bells].

Verse 2
He'll take a lonely life that's lived in vain,
And with His loving hands use what remains.
Oh, He fills the empty heart that wants Him there.
He'll give you a song, heavenly music you'll hear.

Repeat Chorus

Refrain 3
I hear the bells [I hear the bells].
For every time I speak of this great love,
I hear the bells again.

Refrain 4
I hear the bells, I hear the bells,
I hear the bells, I hear the bells,
I hear the bells, I hear the bells.
The bells are ringing in my heart.
