There is a little Bell that sounds

Like music fling from harps of gold;

And every vibrate sweet resounds

With chords of loveliness untold.

=====

Each word embodies magic power,

That sooths my heart and quells my fear;

Mild as the dew drop on the flower,

But sharper than a Parthian spear.

=====

Then ring, sweet Bell, your chimes ne’er break,

You hold my soul in magic spell;

All other sounds but discord make,

Compared to you, my charming Bell.
