I hear the church bells ringing

I hear the church bells ringing,

But only in my mind

Their echoes gently singing

From another place and time

I hear the church bells ringing

And I know for whom they toll

They’re summoning the soldiers

Who will fight for His lost souls

I hear the church bells ringing

For those who stand so near

Their deafness echoes silence

I’m praying they will hear

I hear the church bells ringing

Calling all to Freedom’s aid

To share the gospel message

The Price… it has been paid

I hear the church bells ringing

Their joyful timbre played

To honor those who listened

But more than that, obeyed

I hear the church bells ringing

Hinting that the time is near

To gather all who follow

Now is not the time to fear

I hear the church bells ringing

Their somber dirges played

In grief for those who heard

But in defiance turned away

I hear the church bells ringing

Calling us to stop and pray

That we would bring a newness

The dawning of a day

I hear the church bells ringing

Their boldness fills the sky

Foretelling of the King’s return

The rapture must be nigh

I hear the angels singing

The last bell on earth has rung

He’s gathered up His loved ones

Our days on earth are done

I hear the angels singing

All glory, laud, and praise

Forever in His presence

His glory now we raise

I hear the angels singing

And I raise my voice with Thee

Forever in His presence

For all eternity.

I am a musician, an engineer, a mentor; my desire is to leave things better than I found them; I am a sister, daughter, wife, mother, aunt, friend. Suicide breaks my heart; Cancer breaks my heart; Human trafficking breaks my heart; Seeing people make bad life decisions breaks my heart. I am thankful for the One True and Living God who saved me from myself and, through His Son Jesus Christ, has saved from my sins; I am confidently persistent, passionately determined and boldly creative so that I may inspire others to live a life that ultimately matters.
