Clarity of the Bell


Each day the church bell rings, singing a song of jubilation,

Announcing to the world that Christ was born, in adulation.

So joyous and crisp each sounding refrain, a fine sensation,

As devoted worshipers gather in throngs, their congregation.


A precious cry of joyful bliss, proclaiming all to come,

Made up of every walk in life, people, their vast sum.

Showing how much each cares and why we all adore,

The beloved Son of God above us, as he went before.


Please come to join in, take the time to praise the Lord,

We may trust Him for He's carried burdens, ever onward.

Taken away our sins in life and has given us all salvation,

Shows how the Father has love, a reason for our creation.


Peal, oh you bells of the steeples, on highest tops,

Announcing the returning of the son and our Lord,

Telling the story of His devotion and of His affection,

As on His white steed, He comes, baring His sword.


Give all the people security and a sanctuary of their own,

Let the world know you come and of all their sins to atone.

You are the light of this world, showing us each your way,

Lead us each, oh Shepherd of love, never let any to stray.

Beautiful poem, whonu. Bells are a wonderful reminder to come together in the world; they have a deep message in their sound alone, as you have so adeptly illustrated.

Very much appealing and inspiring.

This ending line aptly asserts some hope in the present atmosphere:

Lead us each, oh Shepherd of love, never let any to stray.
