GEC English Hymn

English Hymn 71

STANZA 1
The Gospel bells are ringing,
Over land, from sea to sea;
Blessed news of free salvation
Do they offer you and me.
“For God so loved the world
That his only Son He gave;
Whosoe’er believeth in Him
Everlasting life shall have.”

Refrain:
Gospel bells, How they ring!
Over land, from sea to sea;
Gospel bells,freely bring.
Blessed news too you and me.

STANZA 2
The Gospel bells invite us
To a feast prepared for all;
Do not slight the invitation,
Nor reject the gracious call.
“I am the Bread of life:
Eat of me, thou hungry soul;
Though your sins be red as crimson
They shall be as white as wool.”

STANZA 3
The Gospel bells give warning,
As they sound from day to day,
Of the fate which doth await them
Who for ever will delay. “escape thou for thy life,
Tarry not in all the palin;
Nor behing thee look – oh,
never, Lest thou be consumed in pain.”

STANZA 4
The Gospel bells are joyful,
As they echo far and wide
Bearing notes of perfect pardon,
Through a Saviour crucified.
“Good tidings of great joy
To all people do I bring;
Unto you is born a Saviour,
Which is Christ the Lord” and King.
