Details of the Bells
When the full ring its tuneful voice shall raise,
Let me be the first to lead the call to praise.
Gladsome we peal from out the Church’s tower
To God’s great glory, and his love and power
To worship duly Heaven’s Almighty Lord,
Our sweetest chimes unite with one accord.
When wedded love as makes two as one abide,
Their joy we spread it far and wide
From Mersey’s banks sounds forth our sacred glee,
And courts responsive echoes from the Dee
Aloft we are but loftier points the spire,
That Heavenward man should raise his hearts desire
May every strain melodious we outpour,
Stir all who hear God’s goodness to adore.
Gloria in Excelsis Deo
