Early this morning as the day began
I was sweeping on the porch.
I could hear the neighbor lady singing songs to Jesus
And the dog started barking the chorus.
I said to myself we've got a little band
And we're making a joyful noise
Just like bells of joy ringing for the Lord.
Now the riverss, and the mountains, and the stars and
Go spinning through the sky
When God looks down on his creation
And he breaths the breath of life.
It stirs the soul of every heart
And every creature sings it's part
Like bells of joy ringing for the Lord.
All God's children, God the Father
Is listening from the throne.
The sigh of peace would be like a symphony
If we would all start singing that song.
We could all look to heaven and raise our voice.
That 'ol devil would look up and say what's that noise
And we'd sing bells of joy ringing ringing
Bells of joy ringing ringing
Bells of joy ringing for the Lord.
