74. Chime On Sweet Bells

1 Into Thy presence blest,
Dear Lord, we cheerful come;
Sweet peace pervades Thy house,
This truly is our home;
The bells’ soft accents rise and fall
Upon the air, inviting all
Thy house to seek, Thy love to share,
E’er guarded by Thy watchful care.

Chorus:
Chime on, chime on,
Chime on sweet bells, chime on,
Chime on, chime on,
Chime on sweet bells, chime on.

2 ‘Tis here we gather strength,
For each oncoming day;
‘Tis here we banish grief,
And anxious care away;
With hearts made glad we list the call,
Of chiming bells, entreating all
To find surcease of sorrow here,
And comfort from Thy presence dear. [Chorus]
