"Ring the Bells of Gladness" (karaoke)

"Ring the Bells of Gladness" (sheet music)


Ring the bells of gladness for 'tis dawn of day.

See the slaves uprising from their chains!

Haste, O, comrades, greet them out upon the way.

Welcome them with joyous pealing strains.

Tremble, mammon, when the comrades sing;

Tremble, mammon, at the news we bring.

Proletary army, like a booming sea,

Pealing forth the anthem of the free.

 

Ring the bells of gladness o'er the din and fray.

Industry again is free and bright.

Lo, the toilers rescued from their cringing way,

Born to independence and to light.

Tremble, mammon, when the comrades sing;

Tremble, mammon, at the news we bring.

Proletary army, like a booming sea,

Pealing forth the anthem of the free.

 

Ring the bells of gladness; let the trumpets bray.

Comrades, shout the high triumphant strain.

Tell the joyful tidings; bear it far away

For the workshop now is born again.

Tremble, mammon, when the comrades sing;

Tremble, mammon, at the news we bring.

Proletary army, like a booming sea,

Pealing forth the anthem of the free.

 

Ring the bells of gladness; wave our banner gay

For a joy is swelling in our hearts.

"Earth regenerated," let the comrades say.

Exploitation now from earth departs.

Tremble, mammon, when the comrades sing;

Tremble, mammon, at the news we bring.

Proletary army, like a booming sea,

Pealing forth the anthem of the free.
